Join me in a hike out to Pisgah Forest.This hike will be approximately 10 miles and is mostly moderate to strenuous.
We will start from the Fish Hatchery parking lot and take the 123 Butter Gap trail, connect to the Art Loeb trail, and then hook up to the Cat Gap and John Rock trail. The trails will go along streams, a waterfall, and we will go along the base of Cedar Rock Mountain and go up to John Rock near the end of the hike and back to the parking lot.
We will meet at Ingles on Brevard Road at 9:00 AM, arrange carpooling and depart for the trail by 9:15. It is approximately a 30 mile (45 minute) drive to the trailhead. I anticipate arriving at the trailhead around 10:00.
We should be back to the trailhead around 3:00 PM and return to Ingles around 4:00 - 4:30 PM. These are not definite times but just estimates so plan accordingly so we don't need to rush back for any appointments or other engagements.
Bring plenty of water, food, and cash for your driver.
Well-behaved dogs are ok.
There is a waiting list for this hike but it is not automatic. If you are on the waiting list and a spot opens up, those on the waiting list will receive an email and then you will be able to sign up if a space is available. Thanks.
