Your Trail Running adventure retreat in the heart of the Cohutta Wilderness.

Watch the 2023 recap video here.

The Weekend

Truly something for everyone. Start your mornings with yoga or hike out to catch the sunrise. Hit the trails for a long run led by one of our running coaches. Hike out to panoramic vistas or find a cold creek to escape the heat. Join in on one of our guided mobility strength training clinics. Finish the day relaxing by the campfire or in the hot-tub.

We’ll even have some fun challenges throughout the weekend for the competitive folks.

The Venue

Mulberry Gap Basecamp is located in the heart of the designated "Mountain Bike Capital of Georgia," in the vast Cohutta Wilderness in the Chattahoochee National Forest.

You'll find countless miles of gravel, mountain biking and hiking trails right outside of our gates — Pinhoti, Bear Creek, Mountaintown Creek, Windy Gap, Milma — as well as the Cohutta Wilderness Area.

We have a mix of cabins and campsites reserved for you. Cabins can accommodate up to 4 persons each, most are setup with a king/queen bed and either 2 bunk beds or 2 twins in a single room. Larger cabins are available if needed - just reach out prior to registering to confirm availability.

Cabin reservations require a 2 person minimum, if you are traveling solo and do not want to be paired with other solo campers, please register for a private cabin instead. As long are you're traveling with at least one friend or family member you may register for a standard cabin and we will pair you together in your own cabin.


Mulberry Gap Basecamp offers camp-style community meals as well as snacks, beverages, and coffee throughout the weekend. We will eat in their dining hall for breakfast and dinner, lunch will be made to go! Summit will provide water, hydration, and other nutrition and snacks during activities. You may also choose to provide and prepare your own meals if you have the means to do so.


What do I need to bring?
-Yourself, a loved one, a few friends, camping gear if you’re camping, and an appetite for adventure.

What does the schedule look like?
-We’re still working on an action packed weekend itinerary for you and will provide a tentative schedule soon. Have an idea for an activity you’d like to lead or facilitate? Let us know!

Could I bring my pet?
-Yes! Please indicate so during registration.
Could I get my drink on?
-Yes, you could ; )


What if I’d like to join but I’m not that adventurous?
-We’ll have a variety of support roles and volunteer opportunities available that you may be perfect for! Send us a message and we’ll go from there.

What is the difference between private cabin and shared cabin?
Cabins have a two person minimum occupancy requirement and most can sleep up to 4 people. If you are a solo attendee and would like a cabin to yourself only, then you will need to book a 'Private Cabin'. If you are traveling with at least one friend and meet the 2 party minimum, you only need to reserve a 'Cabin' and make sure to list your party members on the next page (*reminder that each attendee needs to register separately.) If you are a solo attendee and do not mind being paired with other attendees, you may register for 'Cabin'.

Participants may submit a deposit of $100 to secure your spot at the camp for 2024. The remainder of the payment will be due by June 1st.
