Venture Grayson Highlands Backpacking

Registration Deadline: Tuesday, March 26, 2019 - 12:00 PM

Let Spring unfold under your feet! Grayson Highlands State Park in Southwestern Virginia has so many exciting things to offer: sweeping views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, vast meadows of wildflowers, and wild ponies and longhorns. This overnight trip will provide a perfect introduction to backpacking, where you and your team will carry everything you need to live in the outdoors for a weekend on your backs.  Come out to surprise yourself, to make friends, and to unplug and experience the beauty of one of the Appalachians' most breathtaking landscapes.
