Tailgating after a hike

After a long day hike, an afternoon climb or a 5 to 6-hour bike ride getting back into the car and traveling back home (usually in traffic) can be a huge downer. You might be hungry for some hot food, or maybe wearing moist clothes from sweating or being caught in a storm - either way - the drive can be quite unpleasant. When planning your adventurous day, the drive home can be the last thing on your mind - but fear not! We have all you need to make that journey back just a little bit more bearable!

With a slight chill in the air, Fall is nearing and some would say the best hiking of the year is about to unfold. In the Southeast United States, the tree tops turn a magnificent red, orange and yellow hues to welcome the cooler weather. Some years the glory may only last a few weeks, and some years the fall colors stick around for 2 to 3 months depending on your elevation. With so many amazing places to visit we want you to have plenty of time to plan your fall trips.
