Honors is getting out of Gainesville for the weekend of November 6-8 and heading to Linville Gorge in North Carolina!

This trip will include great company, delicious meals, wonderful hikes, and sleeping under the stars. Linville Gorge is guaranteed to leave even the most experienced backpacker inspired.

We will leave early Friday morning on November 6 and plan to make it to the trail head by early afternoon. We will hike into the woods and enjoy nature for all it has to offer and then return late Sunday night. Please note, this is a primitive trail which means no toilets, electricity, or running water.
