Spring Break Foothills of the Smokies Backpacking Want to take a risk and try something new this spring break? Are you interested in learning how to backpack and challenge yourself to live outside for multiple days? This outdoor experience may be for you! After a road trip to South Carolina, we will explore and campout in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. Our itinerary is geared for first-time backpackers, but all experience levels will enjoy the beauty and solitude of this trip. This trip is an expedition of sorts and we will be carrying all of our gear on our backs — resulting in an excellent outdoor learning experience and challenge.
