Join us for cooler temperatures and beautiful hiking for a Fall Pioneer camping experience at Cloudland Canyon. We have a full staff for set up, cooking, cleaning, and meal prep to give everyone a relaxing enjoyable weekend.
At Cloudland we are going to an intimate 25 members. Plan on sleeping under the stars on a beautiful fall evening, enjoying good food, and having great conversation around the camp fire. We will enjoy a acoustic sing along for those that wish to bring musical instrutments.
Saturday, there will be a hearty breakfast featurung Eggs, Pancakes, Bacon, and more Bacon, After breakfast we head out on the 4.8 mile West Rim Trail with beautiful vistas of the canyon and rugged geology. We will have a provided lunch overlooking the countryside some 2000 feet below. Following the hike, for those interested with energy to spare, brave the infamous stairs down into the gorge to view two gorgeous waterfalls cascading into large pools (assuming there has been rain).
The remainder of the afternoon is yours to enjoy. Later, we will enjoy a 5 star cookout prepared by our AOC chefs, relax around the fire and enjoy more conversation and musical sing alongs. Sunday, it's a light breakfast and pack for home.
We will have plenty of evening snacks and desserts to go along with our campfire. It just doesn't get any better! Join us for our Fall in the Mountains pioneer camping trip!
