Appalachian Trail Pilgrimage


Appalachian Trail Pilgrimage

Appalachian Trail Pilgrimage to Grayson Highlands                     

Join us for a backpacking pilgrimage along a section of the Appalachian Trail known as The Scottish Highlands of Virginia.  The longest hiking footpath in the world - you will encounter mountain ponies and longhorn cattle along the way as we explore some of the most unique landscapes in the State of Virginia. 

Trip Dates: May 18 - 21, 2023

There will be 14 spaces available for participants, and those spaces will be allotted between first-time pilgrims and prior pilgrims based on interest. 

Pilgrims will need to be mentally and physically prepared for strenuous climbs and groaning bones over difficult terrain all while carrying a fully loaded pack. Contact Corinne Jones ( ), Jimmy Stowers ( ) or Caroline Tisdale ( ) with any questions.
