The guide will pick-up the group at Andy's Market to begin the eight hour day. The views from Standing Indian Mountain are breathtaking regardless the season. However, during the fall season, the area is filled with beautiful autumn colors. The forest is filled with ferns, moss, and rhododendron. Take a break for a picnic lunch consisting of flatbread, turkey, hummus, nuts, berries, and greens all from a local organic farm. After the hike is over, the group will head to Stonewall Creek Vineyard for a wine tasting. Enjoy tasting six different artisan wines while learning about the winery itself. Make sure to pick up a bottle or two of a newly discovered favorite. Finally, relax on the drive back to Andy's Market.
Spend the day hiking the Appalachian Trail and reach the highest point of the trail. Make sure to take a selfie while at Standing Indian Mountain to document the achievement. Relax with the other hikers over some good wine made from a small popular winery.
Standing Indian Mountain is the highest point along the Appalachian Trail and stands along the Nantahala River, south of the Smokey Mountains. Views from the top are spectacular regardless of the time of year. Standing Indian Mountain is a beautiful hike in any season, trailing through a sun-dappled forest filled with moss, fern and thickets of rhododendron. It's particularly beautiful in fall, when the forest is painted in the vibrant, warm hues of autumn.
