Profile Trail Hike - Spring - Grandfathrt Mountain - 7 to 8 miles - Very Strenuous.
This is a very strenuous hike and VERY ROCKY. This is an in and out hike. We will be going up Profile trail and toward MacRae Peak and then back down the Profile trail.
We will not be going up or down any Ladders.
Driving time from Greensboro to the trail head is over 2 hours.
This is a REAL trail - you can wear shorts if you want.
Please be prepared for an all day adventure.
This adventure will truly be totally unforgettable.
Please wear hiking boots and I do highly recommend that you bring a walking stick or poles.
Bring your backpack or something to carry your food, snacks and water in. Make sure you have enough water or other drinks with you. Bring rain gear just in case of rain.
