Blackberry Farm’s Winter Backpacking Expedition

Stemming from a long tradition began by Sam Beall, Blackberry Farm’s Proprietor, every year we set off on a trek like no other. After a first night enjoying the comforts of the farm we drive to a trailhead deep in the Smoky Mountains. From there, our small group begins a two night backpacking trip into the wilderness. Solitude, camaraderie, adventure, and escape are all words that have been used to describe the journey. Some years, we have had sunny skies with clear weather, other times fresh snow to blaze a trail through. The season can bring unpredictability, but regardless, each year is a memory of a lifetime. In case there are any reservations, one can rest assured that they will be well taken care of in true Blackberry fashion. Let us know if you are interested and we can fill in all of the details.
