Run - Ride - Race

McDowell County contains some of the best hidden gems of Pisgah National Forest. Its beauty is rivaled only by its ruggedness and Camp Grier is located in the heart of this region. Our campus is the perfect place to base your groups' outdoor adventures. Ride or runs some of the best and most challenging trails Pisgah has to offer and come back and relax at the lake or jump into the pool.


Loops of any size can be crafted from camp that will take you to dramatic views, waterfalls, or summits. Want to go big? No problem. You're at the base of the Black Mountain Range which hold the highest peaks (Mt. Mitchell) and some of the steepest and most sustained climbs on the East Coast. Camp Grier is host to the Hellbender 100, Pisgah Production's Enduro, and Tanawha Adventures' High Country Trail Camp. Other races in the region include Blue Ridge Adventures' Off Road Assault on Mt. Mitchell and Jerdon Mountain Challenge.
