Finding Gear for Your Adventures

If you want to know why tourists have been drawn to the High Country for more than a century, all you have to do is look around. It is our abundance of natural beauty—in the form of mountains, valleys, trails and streams—that keeps nature lovers returning again and again.

While some are content to look at the scenery from the safety of their vehicles, most visitors want to get out into it. Some go on picnics, some take to the trails, while others like scale the steepest slopes of the Appalachian Mountain.

Whatever it is that you like to do outdoors, we’ve got the equipment you need. Our outdoor gear retailers can set you with everything you’ll require for your next adventures. Maps, hiking boots, fishing gear, sunglasses, first aid kits, tents, sleeping bags, climbing gear, coats, backpacks, flashlights and lots of other essential outdoor equipment can be found at places such as Footsloggers, Mast General Store, Elk Creek Outfitters and Foscoe Fishing Company.
