Cohutta Wilderness Area Backpacking Excursion

The Cohutta Wilderness is one of the premier destinations in the southern Appalachians for hiking and backpacking. The many creek crossings, mountain vistas, climbs, and multiple waterfalls make this area a dream come true for backpackers and hikers.

There are places to accomplish an easy day hike in the Cohutta Wilderness; however, it's more often a destination for seasoned hikers or backpackers. You'll have the opportunity to do just that with our seasoned certified guides. They will teach you proper backpacking and camping etiquette, campsite preparation, clean water collection, campfire meal prep, and campsite cleanup using the LNT (Leave No Trace) method.

Everything is included in the rental fee except clothes, personal items, & food. We will provide a backpack for you unless you already have your own.

There is a 6 person max for this amazing trip. For further questions, please contact Angie Shugart at
