Angela Slagle

Professional Guide

Angela is an Asheville native who has been hiking and camping in these mountains since she was a young girl. She is a full time mother, professional educator, and adventurer. When she isn’t on the trail or camping with her family she can be found in her kayak exploring one of the wild and scenic river gorges that the Blue Ridge Mountains are host to. While she isn’t into the crazy kayaking that Evan is into, we have seen a photo floating around social media of her kayaking up to a giant salt-water croc… We think that qualifies for crazy kayaking but we digress. Angela is also famous for her cookies and ewwy-gooey bars, look out for these on the trail!

  • Mt. Leconte
