Backpacking in North Carolina
The longest running Calleva High Adventure returns in all its greatness. We backpack with the sole goal of getting down into the Linville Gorge to find and jump off NATURAL WATERSLIDES! While the gorge is absolutely stunning, the slides and cliffs are what all the kids talk about. This trip wouldn’t be complete without some epic rock climbing while we are on the top of the gorge and some amazing campsites along the banks; but we seek the smooth rock covered in moss that will give us a thrilling ride.
