This experience is not for the faint hearted. We will start out our morning meeting up an hour before sunrise starts at the base of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Typically sunrise is around 6:30am eastern time, this time fluctuates depending on the time of year. Your guide will double check you have the required gear and that your head lamp is functioning. We keep spare lamps and batteries on us if you have a malfunction or need a headlamp let us know.

Upon verifying all gear is in working order and everyone has their supplies we will start a short, 30 minute, drive up the parkway to the trailhead. We will hike a total of 1.5 miles round trip with the initial ascent only taking us 20 minutes or so. Your guide will verify everyone is in a safe location and proceed to make fresh coffee as you enjoy the sunrise of your life with your loved ones. Once the sun has risen and the colors have dissipated we will hike out and be able to enjoy the 360° views we missed on the way up the mountain in the dark.
