Join us for an evening hike featuring one of the most beautiful aspects of our area - our sunset! We will start hiking while it is still daylight, and hopefully catch a sunset at a western-facing peak close to town. Snacks are provided while we watch sunset. After sunset, we'll hike back down to the trailhead. The hike will likely finish in the dark, so we provide a headlamp for each participant to use during the trip. We have a couple of hike options to choose from - ranging from 1.5 to 5 miles and from easy to moderate in difficulty. You'll work with your guide to select the best hike location for you! Our most popular sunset location is a 3-mile out-and-back moderate hike, just a 15 minute drive from our office in downtown Asheville. Exact start time will fluctuate throughout the year, depending on sunset hike and your chosen hike location. Curious about the other hikes we offer? Check out our website.
