Linville Gorge Wilderness Area, NC
If you are a camper looking for your next big adventure this summer, then look no further as Linville Gorge has everything you desire. Linville Gorge is a 38 mile long and 1400 ft deep canyon that cuts through western North Carolina. The wilderness area has pristine waterfalls, secluded trails, multi-pitch rock climbing, cliff jump, and natural waterslides. The week will be all about finding these hidden treasures. We begin the week with a multi-pitch rock climbing adventure before we head deep into the wilderness. Tuesday-Friday we will be traverse the gorge, navigating the web of trails, creeks, canyons, and waterfalls. This week is no ordinary walk through the woods.
