I am working on scheduling a weekend camping trip to Turkey Pen.
I'm still working on the specifics but here's what I've got so far:
Arrive at Food Lion at noon on[masked] and head to Turkey Pen. Setup camp and hike around the area until dinner. Bonfire at dark Cleanup and pack out in the morning. Be back in time for St Patty's day festivities on Sunday.
Feel free to join us for the whole time, part of the time, or even just the bonfire.
Interested in taking a short, long, or somewhere in the middle length hike/stroll in western North Carolina? Look no further!!! Everything from a quick (3-4 hour) hike to a full day of hiking to overnight backpacking trips, we'll try it all! Check us out and experience the pristine and amazing wilderness of western North Carolina!!!
Everyone is welcome to the group, beginner or expert, 2 legs or 4, young and old. Please note that, while the group is open to everyone, not all hikes are appropriate for everyone. Hike organizers reserve the right to limit the hike size and screen potential participants to ensure their own safety and that of others in the group. Hike organizers will also try to post as much information as possible about the hike, however since there are so many trails in the area, we have not always hiked them before and are sometimes relying on published or posted information.
We will meet occasionally to plan the excursions and talk about how to use the meetup tools (ie. change your email settings to not get all the notifications and reminders, how to post photos, etc.)
The fee for this meetup group is paid for by our sponsors, please check them out and support them as you can. Please help us keep this group active and free for everyone!! And please remember that our hike leaders are volunteers. We are doing this because we enjoy hiking, and want everyone else to enjoy it too.
Suggestions are GREATLY appreciated! So, come on in, interact, enjoy yourself, and we'll see you on the trail!
