These are hikes that are completed in one day (duh). SOA will provide an awesome experience that will include a nature destination (summit, falls, river, etc.) based upon your crue's desires and skill level, all the gear and food you will need, and the first beer at the conclusion of the hike is on us.
This is the perfect entry-level adventure for those who are brand new to the wilderness. The cost of this adventure is $125 +$25 (per person(s) + travel expenses (these will change based on how far your guide has to travel to the destination).
These trips typically begin on Friday afternoon and conclude Sunday afternoon. We will spend 3 days and 2 awesome nights out on the trail. SOA provides your gear, common gear, meals, and our first-class guide service. You will learn how to start a fire, filter your drinking water, camp under the stars, and more than likely how to drop a deuce in the woods.

If you are ready to jump off and get a full taste of the outdoors, then this is your adventure.
