Become a Blue Ridge Outdoors TrailHead!


trail·​head | \ ˈtrāl-ˌhed: the point at which a trail begins

After more than two and a half decades as your go-to guide for all things outdoors in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast, we would like to invite you to become a member of the Blue Ridge Outdoors TrailHeads.  

Blue Ridge Outdoors TrailHeads are a group of folks who love the outdoors, stay on top of current issues facing the Blue Ridge, truly appreciate our free monthly content in print and online, and want to help us grow by becoming patrons of the publication.   Blue Ridge Outdoors, a local business based in your Blue Ridge backyard, is 100% sustained by our advertisers—but during this uncertain time we are turning to you, our loyal readers, for support. By becoming a TrailHead, you will help sustain our enthusiastic and dedicated team who is  committed to creating and distributing inspiring outdoor content. And, of course, your help directly supports the printing of the magazine, available free for our readers across the Blue Ridge and beyond. We understand that you may not be able to give back to the magazine financially as COVID-19 impacts our communities and our neighbors. We ask that you recognize our advertisers are making it possible for us to publish each issue of the magazine and we hope that you will thank them for their support! *It may take up to 30 days for you to begin to receive your perks. All patron levels are valid for 1 year, and will automatically renew unless canceled.
