We are honored to announce that Steven Reinhold has agreed to serve as an Event Leader this coming season. Steven will lead hikes and share stories about the history of these hills while exploring the geography or the Great Smoky Mountains. Come join Steven to hike, hear the tales of local lore, and much, much more!
Steven grew up just down the road from The Swag in a childhood home that a view dominated by the Cataloochee Divide, upon which The Swag sits. The Cataloochee Divide served as a gateway to exploration while he was growing up, and the adventuring spirit stuck!
Since graduating from the University of South Carolina, where he played baseball, Steven has served as a wilderness mentor, climbed numerous mountains around the world to raise money for charitable causes, led environmental efforts, and he even found time to climb all 40 peaks in Southern Appalachia over 6,000 feet (the South Beyond 6000 Challenge). More recently, Steve founded the Appalachian Adventure Company along with a returning Swag Event Leader, Steve Yocom. The Appalachian Adventure Company offers pre-planned and custom day trips, backpacking trips, photography tours, fly fishing trips and more.
Steven will be at The Swag on June 15-19, October 25-29, November 1-3. We are blessed at The Swag with a wonderful group of Event Leaders. We are proud to add Steven to this wonderful line up and hope you will consider coming to visit him at The Swag.
