Asheville Mountain Top Sunrise & Coffee

Asheville, United States

Experience hosted by Clayton

  1. 2 hours
  2. Hosted in English

What you'll do

We will meet each other at the base of the iconic Blue Ridge Parkway early in the morning. We will then hop in our adventure-mobile (minivan) and drive to our secret sunrise spot. After a short hike, we will brew some locally roasted coffee. Once the brew is ready we will enjoy delicious hot joe as we watch the sunrise over the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Catching a great sunrise means setting an early alarm, but it is always worth it. We will meet 1 hour before sunrise. Typically around 5:30 AM in the summer months.

Other things to note
It will be cold! Come dressed for the cold mountain air

We love to go to incredible places. That's why we love Asheville. My team and I are always looking for new adventures in the Appalachian Mountains around Asheville. I have lived here my entire life and have been exploring these mountain tops and waterfalls since I was a baby. I have spent years studying and discovering these forests.

I am an Eagle Scout, I founded my own tour guide company, I’m permitted and insured to lead tours in the national forests around Asheville, and I’m trained to ensure everyone stays safe.

There is nothing quite like an Asheville sunrise. This experience will blow your mind. You will wake up before anyone else, ride up to the top of a mountain (6,000') while the stars are still out, hike with a headlamp on through the forest, then reach our secret viewing spot as dawn is arriving.

With a fresh cup of coffee in hand, we will celebrate the arrival of a new day together.

    Delightful experience and delicious coffee! Clayton was extremely friendly and knowledgeable of all things Asheville. I even lost my gloves after the trip and Clayton helped me find it. 100% recommended.

    This sunrise hike was exceptional! We had a beautiful before dawn walk along the closed Blue Ridge Parkway. We arrived at the overlook and Clayton became our sunrise barista. Delicious fresh ground and hot coffee for a glorious sunrise 🌅 Clayton is super knowledgeable and expert host. Don’t miss it!

    Amazing! I did have a few concerns that I didn't think to consider at the time I signed up for a sunrise view, such as weather contingencies, but Clayton answered all of them promptly and professionally. The sunrise was beautiful, but the company and surprisingly agreeable weather made it even more wonderful!

    Being our first time in Asheville, we were unfamiliar with the area and sunrise hiking in general. Clayton took away the stresses of figuring all that out by taking us to the best sunrise location, brewing up some fantastic local coffee, and telling us fun facts about the region. Very glad we booked and elated that the sunrise worked in our favor for a magical moment neither of us will forget. Coffee and a sunrise is definitely a way to start the morning. I say that as not-so-much of a morning person either! If you’re on the fence, book it!
