Appalachian Trail Explorers
ATe is much more than a walk in the woods. Our Hikers, boys and girls, ages 13 to 17, experience the ultimate youth summer adventure in the beautiful mountains of North Carolina.
Backpacking, tent camping, mountain ziplines, whitewater rafting, fly-fishing and more all under the leadership of an experienced, encouraging and enthusiastic trail staff.
To ensure a great experience, only 10 hikers may attend each of the ATe Sessions.
