Take a Walk in the Woods

If you’re stressed, need a break from the norms of our society, or a getaway from your Garlinburg cabin rental, come take a guided nature walk through the Great Smoky Mountains. Exploration excursions, guided backpacking trips, and beautiful hikes await you in Gatlinburg, TN! You can even take overnight trips, rent equipment, take classes, and seminars are available. This idea started with a hike of the Smokies, and turned into the proverbial labor of love. As the owners of A Walk in the Woods became more dissatisfied with life, they began discussing an alternative in which they would be doing something they believed in. They were drawn to the Appalachian Mountains and loved being outdoors, but were unclear of how to make the Smokies their life's work, instead of just a passion.

Then in late August of 1996, Erik took a backpacking trip through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park alone. During this vision quest, he found the answer. Why not share this magic with others? They were experienced hikers and backpackers, with years of studying the natural world. And, so, A Walk in the Woods was born.

From the testimonials, everyone has a great and exciting time. They can’t stop saying good things about their hikes. JM from Tucker, GA said, “After seeing an old growth forest on A Walk in the Woods trip, I understand why people hug trees!” Also, The Happy Hiker now offers a 10% discount on gear for A Walk in the Woods clients.
