Nantahala Adventures

Land of the Noon Day Fun

This Is Our Story

Co-founders, husband and wife, Squarl and Sara Ruth, share a passion for outdoor fun, quality gear, and sustainability.

Our 2- and 4-hour e-bike tours allow guests to experience the backroads of Nantahala National Forest in a new and sustainable way. Explore dense mountain forests, travel along rushing rivers, up to scenic overlooks all without the sound of an engine disturbing you or the wildlife along the way. Just bring your sense of adventure, and we'll bring the gear!

Handpicked Adventures

Scenic Destinations

Ride on mountain ridge lines or along river gorges to explore waterfalls, lakes, trout streams, and scenic overlooks. 


E-bikes were a perfect way to get a close up view of some of the local scenery without hiking. Being an out of shape couple with, ahem, shall we say advancing years, I was a little worried about taking a long hike or bike ride. This was perfect because I could let the e-bike do all the work or just let it help me when needed.

My husband and I enjoyed this so much that I am now the proud owner of an e-bike! This was such a fun and informative way to see and learn more about the area. Highly recommend.

My wife and I took our first e-bike ride with Nantahala Adventures in July.  We enjoyed the experience so much that we took a second e-bike tour with Squarl this month.  His routes are well-planned and offer outstanding mountain scenery.  Squarl is an excellent guide.

We had so much fun on our e-bike adventure. Squarl was an excellent guide - very gracious, informative and so gracious. The scenery was gorgeous, and riding the bikes was a blast. We had so much fun, and I can't wait to do it again.
