Ce vei face

Within minutes of meeting, we'll head off to explore -- off the beaten path -- the wilderness on the flanks of the tallest mountains in eastern North America. Our entire experience is outside, and our Covid-19 protocols are designed to keep you and your family safe. We'll hike through an astonishingly biodiverse forest on unmapped secret trails to hidden waterfalls, rare wildflowers, and crystal clear swimming holes. Along the way, you'll learn about what makes these Blue Ridge forests so special and you'll become acquainted with some of our remarkable flora and fungi. In this immersive Appalachian forest experience, you'll learn which wild plants are safe and tasty to nibble; and you can cool your feet -- or your whole self -- in a clear and cold mountain stream. We'll wrap up the invigorating hike and extended "forest-bath" by replenishing water bottles at a natural roadside spring, known only by locals.

I'm a professional naturalist, introducing people to wild places for 25 years. My guide business is Snakeroot Ecotours, the premier eco-guide service for the Mount Mitchell area. Look us up online (book directly to avoid air bee and bee fees). As a professional guide, I've led trips in Yosemite, Cumberland Island, the Everglades, and all over my beloved mountains of Western NC. I'm the go-to wildflower, mushroom, and hiking guide for this part of the Blue Ridge and my nature column is published in Asheville's Mountain Xpress. It is my passion to learn as much as possible about native flora and fauna, and to share that knowledge with others.

Unde vei fi

As a permitted guide in Pisgah NF (Snakeroot Ecotours), I have access to thousands of acres of pristine wilderness. These mountain forests are my home and I explore them daily. I will introduce you to rare orchids and other beautiful flora and fungi. You'll learn the remarkable natural history of many species and learn about (and taste!) wild edibles. You will get to visit hidden waterfalls and secret swimming holes, hardly even known by locals.

This experience is worth every penny! I would book it again in a heartbeat. Tal has an immense amount of knowledge about the forest (trees, moss, lichen, newts, songbirds— all of it). He’s a kind and patient guide (answered my 1 million questions about mushrooms). The directions to meet him were easy. The path we took was very doable and well paced. It was just me for our trip and I was very comfortable with him. He is an easy conversationalist, but we also had moments we just stood and looked at the great views.

Delightful hike in the Black Mountains with a gifted educator and lovely person. Mushrooms, efts, waterfalls and much more. Go. You won’t regret it.

Our experience with Tal was fantastic. We got to see beautiful waterfalls and learn SO much about the trail vegetation. Plus it was a great way to get your heart rate up! Tal answered questions and is a wealth of knowledge. We will definitely go on another hike/adventure with Tal. Love that it was secret spots that not many know about. If you like to hike and see waterfalls, this is a tour you can’t miss!

Tal has a deep knowledge and passion for leading and teaching. This was truly a once in a lifetime experience. Perfectly paced and Tal took us to places we could never see on our own. What a great day!!!

Tal was an awesome guide. He took us on a trail and showed us views that few others have seen. His hiking pace matched ours. He never out paced us or had us go in places we were uncomfortable going. His knowledge of plants, trees and wildlife is outstanding. If this is your first visit or a local. I’d highly recommend him as a guide!
