Zen Mountain Tours

Trey has lived in the mountains of Western North Carolina his whole life, and in recent years has come to a deeper recognition of the true beauty and wonder that surround us all the time. With this deepening gratitude for the gift of Nature, Trey began offering scenic tours of the WNC mountains to help others discover the healing power of the natural world. His passion led to the creation of Zen Mountain Tours.

Zen Mountain Tours offers custom packages for those interested in exploring the outdoor beauty that Western North Carolina has to offer. If you haven’t had a chance to In-Joy the mountains and forests that surround this little paradise, then you haven’t experienced the joy of discovering some of Mother Nature’s most beautiful creations.

Feedback on Zen Hiking Tour:

"Based on my experience, I recommend this Meetup highly and will gladly attend as often as possible. Trey was just lovely and exuded such warmth and kindness. He offers a safe, light space for anyone in his presence. The group seemed as if I knew them well before the meetup and there was a massive exchange of beautiful energy amongst the whole group. Although the retreat was mostly silent, there has never been so much said and felt amongst a group of “strangers”. Through this Meetup, I have found friendship, peace, and well being all in one place. To anyone looking for a soul family, this is your Meetup!" - Amal A.
