Appalachian Trail Pilgrimage to Three Ridges Wilderness                     

A backpacking pilgrimage to Three Ridges Wilderness, a 15-mile loop in Virginia, where wildflowers and trail magic await. 

Trip Dates: May 13-15, 2022
Cost: $175

Join us for a backpacking pilgrimage along a section of the longest hiking footpath in the world. Our planned route is a quad-busting 15-mile loop in Virginia, where wildflowers and trail magic await.

This pilgrimage will be led by the Rev. David Umphlett. There will be 14 spaces available and divided 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 ( ) or Caroline Tisdale ( ) with any questions.
