With over 2,500 acres of permanently protected wilderness, Montreat Conference Center uses wilderness education to help enhance and expand our appreciation of our natural surroundings. Registered in the North Carolina Registry of National Heritage Areas, Montreat has 21 hiking trails extending over 40 miles.
Our Wilderness School offers opportunities for school groups, scout troops, retreat groups, and individuals seeking informative experiences out of doors. Montreat is also pleased to now offer courses on topics including backcountry basics, making fire with primitive tools, and building shelters.
Our Nature Center serves as the hub for summer guided hikes and for individuals looking to gain more knowledge about the local flora and fauna.
