I had a wonderful experience.Karen P.

Thanks for putting the trip together! It was a good shakedown for my upcoming Appalachian Trail hike. Company was great.Jeff H.

What a fabulous adventure! Where to start? This section of the Roan Highlands is magical in its beauty. The flowers, the trees, the boulders, the steep climbs, the grassy balds, set against the backdrop of mountainous ridge after ridge were breath taking.Karen P.

Well organized. Pace was perfect to new hikers.Randy R.

I loved the rappelling and the yoga in the cave, and of course, I always love hiking. The food was excellent, Linda and Kristy did a great job preparing it. The cabins were great, loved having the wood burning fireplace, and there was plenty of space for 4 people. The employees at the resort, from the restaurant to the guides, were all so nice.Name Withheld

This workshop was so informative, fun, and prepared my husband and I to take off on our own. We learned so much and this confirmed our desire to start backpacking. I was a little unsure and uncomfortable with it before but now I can't wait to get back out there. It was a perfect and amazing experience.Melissa T.

We would never have done our first AT trip if not for Outdoor Adventure Connection. The whole trip was awesome. I love that you even arranged perfect weather for us. I learned so much and feel much more comfortable now about hiking overnight.Teri H.
