Join us as we Reach for the Peaks
and celebrate Girl Scouts! 


Girl Scouts of Southern Appalachians invites all Girl Scouts and friends to join us for our third annual Reach for the Peaks, taking place over two weeks, March 4-19. RFTP is an event where participants, Girl Scout members and non-members alike, can hike on their terms AND support their local Girl Scouts!

You can hike the highest peaks or just around your neighborhood, accomplish 3.12 (our birthday!) miles or set your own goal. You can hike individually or grab some friends (or your troop) and hike as a group.

There are three ways to participate: 

Ghost Hiker: $20

Are you a big supporter of Girl Scouts of Southern Appalachians but not a big hiker? Then this option is for you! By registering as a Ghost Hiker you’ll be supporting Girl Scouts with your contribution but are not expected to do any hiking. Ghost Hikers DO NOT receive a patch or knapsack. 

Independent Hiker – Non-member: $35

Wanna get going on an adventure (big or small) all while supporting Girl Scouts? Then this option is for you! By registering as an Independent Hiker, you’ll be supporting Girl Scouts with your contribution and also pledging to complete a hike of any distance, anywhere, between March 4-19. You can hike solo or with friends or family. Independent Hikers receive a special Reach for the Peaks patch and knapsack.  

Independent Hiker – Member: $10

Are you a current Girl Scout member or a Lifetime member? Wanna get going on an adventure (big or small) all while supporting your fellow Girl Scouts? Then this option is for you! By being a member and registering as an Independent Hiker, you’ll be supporting Girl Scouts with your contribution and also pledging to complete a hike of any distance, anywhere, between March 4-19. You can hike solo, with friends or family, or with your troop. Independent Hikers receive a special Reach for the Peaks patch and knapsack.  

To guarantee that you receive a patch, knapsack, and all participant emails, please register as an Independent Hiker (member or non-member) by March 1.
