Join CORE in the unique experience of meeting fellow first-year students and hiking the famous Appalachian Trail along the border of North Carolina and Tennessee. Experience the freedom of exploring the “Little Hump” and “Big Hump” with all of your belongings in one backpack. Expect full days of hiking. The trip will leave early in the morning on Friday and return late Sunday evening. We will depart from CORE on UF's campus early Monday morning and return late Wednesday evening. Meet new people and experience nature before college starts – adventure awaits!


Registration Includes:

- Group camping equipment (tents etc.)

- All meals (usually vegetarian)

Your mandatory pre-trip meeting date and time will be listed on your receipt email.

All trips are non-refundable unless cancelled by CORE.
