Winter Overnight Backpacking on the Appalachian Trail at Annapolis Rock

  • Skill level : 2


  • Fitness level : 3


Winter is here in Appalachia! Time to hit the trail, and breathe crisp air while backpacking the iconic Appalachian Trail. One of our favorite places during this time of year, enjoy the breathtaking vistas of Annapolis Rock and Black Rock Cliff during the day and warm up at a campfire at night. We'll hike 8 miles round-trip as we use our 3-season backpacking experiences and adapt them to the cold as we enjoy the Appalachian Trail's beauty in the winter. This strenuous backcountry activity is perfect for experienced hikers. You bring the boots and backpack, we'll bring everything else you need to enjoy winter outdoors.
