Pioneer biking on an Expedition trip


Pisgah Expedition

Master the exploration of rivers, mountains, and sky on the Pisgah Expedition. Pioneers on this trip will begin at water level, kayaking through the Green River, then move to mountain tops, biking through the extensive trails of DuPont State Forest and our very own Ride Kanuga. Finally, they’ll climb to the treetops to see the forest from a new perspective on zip line canopy tours. Meg’s Outpost will serve as home-base for these pioneers and explorers, so they’ll be able to bring their adventures home with them and be welcomed back by their residential camp family.
