Additional Information

Stride through sweet-smelling pine forests to reach sweeping panoramic vistas with a girl gang you’d trust more than Indiana Jones. Your Great Smoky Mountain National Park adventure includes essential hiking over parts of the Appalachian Trail with nightly glamping minutes from Gatlinburg, Tennessee. Your Insta feed won’t know what hit it.

Your hiking adventure has been carefully (obsessively?) curated by the Explorer Chick team over countless in-field tests. Only our top treks make the itinerary – so prepare to be challenged on the trail and rewarded with the most OMFG-level mountain views and waterfalls. 

Climb to one of only three remaining fire towers in the National Park as you embark on the strenuous ascent up Mt. Cammerer. Take it “easy” on a moderate hike to the park’s highest single-drop waterfall, Rainbow Falls. Inch out to a bald rock outcropping on Charlie’s Bunion to get your heart hammered by mountain scenery in every direction. Yes, this is real life with WILD women. 

Two of your hikes will place your determined feet on the Appalachian Trail, which thousands of thru-hikers have walked before you.

Of course, what’s a trip to Tennessee without whiskey? You’ll spend a few hours on an exclusive, private tour with our local guide visiting distilleries on the Tennessee Whiskey Trail. Go behind the scenes at a real working still house and see how everything is made start to finish. Learn the history of whiskey throughout the Prohibition era, the state’s romance with whiskey, and why these mountains were such an integral part of moonshine culture.

Each night, put your feet up in total Pinterest-worthy digs. Your tent that has been tastefully decorated and luxuriously appointed with WiFi and temperature control – with meals freshly prepared at camp by your Explorer Chick guides. You only have one task after hiking: RELAX.

It’s a wonderfully wild weekend with a small group of women hiking the Appalachian Trail and exploring the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Over the course of the 4 days, you’ll quickly grow close with your posse of Explorer Chicks as you hike the trails and share memories of summits. Join us on our 4 Day, weekend women’s hiking trip to experience it yourself!
