About Us

White Blaze Outdoors is providing a full-service experience on the hikes and trails that are listed. I have six years previous experience as a manager working with outdoor tourism along the Virginia Creeper Trail. I freelance hike 200-300 miles on average each year on these trails and have Wilderness First Aid certification. We are located in Abingdon, Virginia and weā€™re launching this journey of a hiking business in order to share our love of the wilderness with all people. A big reason for starting this company is to share my beliefs that nature is therapeutic, and that it is designed by God for us to connect with our inmost being. My hope is that this step in my life allows me to lead my family towards a goal of being able to have the freedom to take time to do long-term missions in Central America and Africa. Thanks for considering me as your guide.
