Grab a sleeping bag and fuel up your truck - let's explore Appalachia! A weekend of rich history and unique cultures await as we travel through the remote territories that are shadowed by the Appalachian Mountains.
Mountain State Expeditions is a vehicle-based guide service operated by team members and friends of the Mountain State Overland video series on YouTube. Since 2013, our team of guides have logged over 30,000 miles of adventures in the eastern United States and we'd like to re-discover many of those miles with you.
Our trip packages vary in length, mileage and difficulty. We operate day trips, weekend excursion and premium extended multi-sport adventures. All of our trips are photographed and some of our expeditions are filmed and released on YouTube! Each trip we lead includes catered dinners plus a eX Kit packed full of gear, discounts, digital route files and more.
We keep the groups small to preserve your experience and manage our impact on the ecosystems we pass through. All trips require a 4WD vehicle and guest drivers must be over 25 years of age.
Join us on our Discovery Route adventures and retrace tracks that our team explored in years past. Experience local cultures and vast landscapes as we take you on an overland adventure in the Appalachian Mountains.

Can I drive a stock 4WD vehicle? Yes, we encourage stock rigs. These trips should be the testing ground for discovering a need for equipment or testing what you already have.
I have a full-size truck, will it fit? Sure, it'll fit and based on your vehicle's width you might leave with some bumps and bruises. Our shorter trips, like the WEEKND_X are more wide open than our other events and expeditions.
Do I need to have 4WD experience? No, we'll help walk you through your time with us. Guests with very little or no offroad driving experience should expect to leave feeling confident in their new skill set.
What do I need to pack? We've got you covered. Each guest receives a comprehensive packing list prior to the trip and coupon codes to shop with our industry partners if there's something they need.
Are my passengers free? Your first passenger is free. In most cases kids under 12 are free too. Anyone else over 12 years old will be required to pay certain fees specific to the event you are purchasing.
How much does it cost? Prices vary from $300 to as much as $1200 per truck. Each trip purchased includes a eX Kit and covers all costs associated with evening dinners, camping and permits for the driver and passenger.
