We have a new cancellation policy for backpacking trips:

Trip cost includes a 15% non-refundable administrative fee. Hikes may be cancelled up to 1 month before the trip for a refund (minus the 15% admin fee). Within 1 month, a 50% refund will be offered. Within 1 week, a refund will only be offered if Blue Ridge Hiking Company cancels the trip due to severe weather.

Hikers may reschedule their trip once (at least 2 weeks before their trip) free of charge. Additional changes to their reservation date may result in rescheduling fees.


This policy goes into effect for any trip registration beginning June 16, 2024 for all backpacking trips beginning in July 2024. We will gladly honor our old cancellation policy for any hiker who signed up before June 26, 2024.
