All hikers should bring rain gear. Hikers should also bring a water bottle and any personal medications. Short hikes require comfortable shoes.
– Shoes worn on all paddle trips should have a back strap. Wear clothes that you are comfortable getting wet in.
– Those taking an e-bike tour should bring an extra layer in case the weather is chilly when finishing the trip, clothes that you can comfortably bike in for a few hours, closed-toed shoes and water and a snack if desired.
– Helmets and floatation devices are provided by Asheville Adventure Company.
– It is always a good idea to call ahead and make reservations, particularly during busy seasons and weekends.
