Fall Tours - Great Smoky Mountains, Yosemite, Zion, Bryce Canyon, Death Valley and Grand Canyon

Spotlight on Fall Adventures with Timberline Adventures 

Fall is on the way and here are several spotlight tours from our adventure tour partner. These feature the national parks we so love.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park hiking tourIn so many ways, Great Smoky Mountain National Park is dedicated to hiking and we are challenged by the park’s 850 miles of trails to select those that will provide our hikers with a varied experience and a true sense of those features for which the park is famous. When one considers the park’s proximity to so many major population centers of the eastern U.S., it’s difficult to form an image of wilderness, but under the protection and guidance of the National Park Service, wilderness survives in Great Smoky.




Yosemite National Park Hiking tourJohn Muir, America’s greatest environmentalist, devoted much of his adult life battling for the preservation and protection of our greatest natural icons.  He was instrumental in the establishment of several of our national parks and a moving force in the creation of the National Park Service.  He spent the final years of his life locked in a losing fight to save Yosemite’s magnificent Hetch Hetchy Valley from obliteration by the construction of a dam and reservoir in the Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne River intended to serve San Francisco’s need for water and power.




Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park Multisport Adventure Tour - Deep canyons, the startling hoodoos of Bryce Canyon National Park and the rock temples of Zion National Park, the breathtaking array of color, the variety of vegetation, the high alpine setting of the Dixie National Forest — all contribute to the excitement of the Bryce Canyon/Zion biking and hiking tour. 




New Tours - Death Valley National Park with Grand Canyon optionDeath Valley National Park has an instantaneous emotional impact on everyone who sees it. That initial view from Zabriskie Point across the vastness of the valley floor to the distant Panamint Peaks rising from the valley clad in an unmistakable mantle of snow is unlike anything that you have ever experienced in a hiking trip.




For the coming winter a new tour as well, the Rocky Mountain National Park winter snowshoe tour, snowshoes included. Rocky Mountain National Park is one of America’s most popular National Parks, but in the winter time there is a completely different feel. With far fewer visitors and more active wildlife you can get immersed in a truly wilderness experience. The majestic high peaks are engulfed in snow, the trees sparkle in the sunlight and sounds of animals echo off the distant cliffs as you enjoy a leisurely walk up the valleys and around the frozen lakes.
