I liked learning the principles of Leave No Trace. It is nice to know your program leaders have such a true passion in what they do.Linda H.

What I like best is learning survival skills out in the woods but also those that could be applied to every day life such as Stopa!M.W.

The organization of the trail projects was well planned - we had what we needed, where we needed it. It was nice having park employees join us each day too.Barb K.

This trip was one of the best times I've had in a long time. I'm not really sure what I would change. The gear list was very clear. The guides were very open and helpful with there thoughts on different gear and tips to make things easier. Thanks for a great trip. Jeremy L.

What a fabulous experience! I enjoyed meeting, hiking and laughing with everyone. Thank you for a great adventure!! Your photos capture every aspect of the journey. The beauty of the land, new friendships, laughter and fatigue.Pat S.

I really liked the planning that was evident on this trip. No one can predict the weather - and we certainly experienced 3 of the 4 seasons - but there were plans in place to deal with whatever mother nature threw at us.Linda M.

I can't pick any one thing I liked "best". I thought the whole trip was great. You have done an outstanding job on the other trips I've been on with you and you did so again on this one. First rate all the way.Jack L.

I had an absolutely amazing time in the Roan Highlands. We hiked over beautiful grassy balds and mountains and had gorgeous weather, and were able to see all the mountains surrounding us. We saw beautiful flowers: rhododendrons blooming and fire azaleas and all sorts of wild flowers. I wish everyone could see such beautiful things and experience such peace, being out in nature.Alyssa R.

What can I say - I DID IT!!!! It was not as bad as I feared, and better than I hoped.Jane G.

We had an absolutely perfect weekend. The hiking pace was nice, the workshops were informative, and evening at the campfire trying out various types of freeze dried food and stoves was a blast. Thank you for a wonderful time.Sophia Z.

There isn't just one thing that I loved about this trip. It was a wonderful experience all around. The group I was in was fantastic, helpful, kind, positive, adventurous, courageous, and honest. I felt completely comfortable with the group, and the level of intensity of the hike was exactly what I was looking for.Shannon M.

I can't think of anything to change or do better. The park, facilities, trails and amenities were absolutely wonderful and beautiful. Very happy! The guides were great! They were interesting, provided a personal experience and were so very knowledgeable. So enthusiastic!Debbie D.

The entire trip was great. I was at ease as soon as I met all the guides. They were professional and made the trip a fun learning experience, even in the rain. I couldn't ask for a better program to learn backpacking skills. I'm thankful I signed up. Thank you for a great adventure!Catie H.
