4 Top Timeshare Destinations for Autumn Backpacking Hikes

Backpacking is a great way to get out into the midst of nature’s autumn splendor. Make a timeshare rental your home base, and enjoy day backpacking trips through beautiful wilderness areas such as National Parks, seashores, and even hidden gems.

1. Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Located on the border of Tennessee and North Carolina, the park lies right in the heart of Appalachia, and offers over 800 miles of hiking trails, 70 miles of which are actually on the Appalachian Trail. The spectacular colors of fall foliage here are some of the best in the country.

Timeshare rentals are available in Gatlinburg, the “gateway” to America’s most visited National Park. Gatlinburg timeshare rentals start at just $53/night.

2. Idaho’s Sawtooth Mountains. Many consider Idaho a “hidden gem” for backpackers. Sixty-four percent of Idaho is public land, including 33 million acres of national forests, and lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management. The 73,000-acre Sawtooth National Recreation area, adjacent to Ketchum and Sun Valley, is covered in the shimmering golds of aspen in autumn.

3. Missouri Ozarks. The Ozarks offer another great hiking area, especially when in their colorful glory during the autumn. Hundreds of miles of hiking trails are around the Branson area. Table Rock Lake near Branson has over 800 miles of shoreline and sparkles like a jewel in the autumn sun.

Many wonderful Branson timeshare rentals are available, starting at just $57/night.

4. Cape Cod. The Cape Cod National Seashore is perfect for day backpackers, especially in autumn when the days are still warm and the crowds are gone. There are eleven self-guided hiking tours open year round where, in order to help preserve the natural wonders of the area, bicycles are not allowed. Ranging from easy to advanced, these trails can take you on wonderful adventures across 43,000 acres of dunes, ponds, woods, swamps, marshes, and almost 40 miles of Atlantic shoreline.

Cape Cod timeshare rentals start as low as $86/night.

When you combine budget timeshare rentals with your backpacking passion, you get the best of two worlds. A bonus is being able to use your timeshare kitchen to prepare the lunch and snacks that you’ll carry in your backpack.

And by the way, if you have family members who are not into backpacking with you, a timeshare rental will give them plenty to do –many of the resort’s amenities, often including swimming pools, children’s playgrounds, tennis, and arcade game rooms, are often included in the timeshare rental price.
