Immerse yourself in summer by hiking in Hocking Hills. Spend a night under the stars at John Glenn Astronomy Park. Explore sandstone cliffs, gorges and native plants. Enjoy time around a bonfire and take a special hike on a private ranch. Following the next day is a morning sunrise hike and an afternoon of kayaking with a visit to a special hideout of barn swallows.

I treasure these forested foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and the valleys and rivers that run through them, and invite you to come share them for a three-day adventure: biking on the 17-mile Hock-Hocking Adena Bikepath, kayaking the meandering Hocking River and hiking trails to touch the earth. In the evenings, retreat to the peace of Touch the Earth Adventures’ secluded shelter house or sleep in a Native-American-style tipi. Lodging and meals included.
**Bring your own bike. Bikes available for rent at additional cost.



Explore the diverse waterways and soak up the local culture of the Charleston area with this incredible Low Country retreat. Spend three days kayaking along sandy bays, winding rivers and the Intracoastal Waterway. In your down time, explore Charleston’s historic downtown and world-class dining scene. We’ll wind up the week with a private boat trip and beach walk on Bull Island (part of the Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge). Price includes six nights of lodging and delicious meals (six breakfasts, five lunches and five dinners) prepared by a professional chef.



Hike with us under wise old trees and kayak on healing waters this with Touch the Earth Adventures. Arrive at Burr Oak to kayak for the day and explore a portion of the lake where we have not paddled before. There is time for rest stops and lunch along our journey. A large fire awaits us along the shore at our late afternoon secluded and hidden stop where our dinner is cooked for us over our fire. Paddle back to the landing to end our day and check into our cabins and enjoy our evening. Daylight will greet us for our sunrise paddle the next morning (optional). Enjoy breakfast at the cabin and be ready to experience the connection we feel hiking under the ancient wise trees for the day (four to six miles).

Imagine hiking a section of the 2,159 mile Appalachian trail that extends from Springer Mountain in Georgia to Mt. Katahdin in Maine! This section of trail traverses Virginia and crosses over into West Virginia. Hike by day and sleep by night in Bear’s Den Hostel, mountaintop castle-like lodging overlooking the valley with the Shenandoah River running through it.

When the leaves bathe the earth and the waters chill, Touch the Earth Adventures transitions to the winter season with new event offerings. We can celebrate the second full moon of January, named the Blue Moon with a one-night, two-day retreat.
