|Fall Foliage Tour
$275.00 per motorcycle
Introduction to motorcycle camping! This is what our company is known for, as this is one of our highlighted tours. This 3 day, 2 night tour will take riders from the Triangle (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill) to the foothills of North Carolina. This tour includes your tent, sleeping bag and sleeping pad. Additionally, you will get to keep your camp pillow after the tour. It’s yours to keep. Fall Foliage I will concentrate on higher elevations as they start to change colors earlier. Colors will dictate more of the travel for the Fall Foliage II tour as well. On this tour, we will provide a bag for you to pack and carry it up for you!
Thursday Evening. The night before the tour leaves, meet for a briefing on the trip and drop off your personal bag. Bags available for pick-up Sunday or Monday evening.
