    • Weather - Mountain weather is extremely unpredictable. We do our best to make sure the conditions are good for a sunrise but we cannot guarantee visibility on every trip. Fog and clouds can come through in minutes. As a result, clear viewing of the sunrise is not guaranteed, but we will try our best to get you to see the sunrise. If there is rain in the forecast for your tour, your guide will reach out before the trip to discuss alternative options such as moving to a different date. If the weather becomes dangerous and we must cancel the trip, you will receive a full refund.

    • Dress Warm! Always dress warmer than you think you need to. With swift changing weather and high elevations, it is often 15 degrees colder than the temperature in Asheville. Dress in layers, and bring an extra jacket, you can always leave it in the van if you are warm enough.
    • Road Closures and Trail Conditions - This tour operated on National Forest land and on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Trails and roads could be closed at any time for a number of reasons. Sometimes we have a heads up about these changes but oftentimes we do not get much warning. If factors outside of our control affect our tour we will take an alternate route (road or trail) to still provide you with an amazing sunrise view. These alternate routes may require more or less hiking than the normal described route. In any event, your guide will communicate with you about the changes.
    • Dogs - Dogs are such a joy to hike and explore with! You are more than welcome to bring your doggo along with us but we ask that you drive separately just in case there are any allergies. Also, the National Forest requires that all dogs are on leash at all times. If you plan to bring your dog, please let us know ahead of time.

    Sunrise with my favorite person (my hubby)
    Crystal_K, Aug 2020
    Had such an amazing time being in the mountains with my hubby getting to see the sunrise! Quite a moment! Our guide Clayton was very accommodating and made sure that we were comfortable every step of the way, this was the start to our vacation and it set the mood! A must tour to do you won’t want to miss out. The Pisgah mountains are just very majestic!
