  • Apr 6, 2013 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

Please join me on a hike in NC/SC @ Whitewater Falls. We'll first hike to the lower falls (SC) & then hike up to the upper falls (NC) in one shot ! RSVP's for this hike will open at 10:00 PM on Wednesday April 3rd.

WHEN: Saturday, April 6th

WHERE: Whitewater Falls (Upper/Lower, NC/SC)<--clickable link
>>>More info here<<<

DISTANCE: ~7 miles

TRAIL TYPE: One way w/shuttle

DIFFICULTY: Moderate/Strenuous (See elevation profile below - last section a steep climb)

Dogs are allowed, provided they are kept under physical restraint or on a leash not longer than six feet.

  • Bring lunch and plenty of water.
  • Dress appropriately for the weather (layered clothing).
  • Hiking boots or sturdy shoes.
  • Trekking poles.
  • Please bring gas $$$ for your car pooling drivers.

We will meet at Ingles on Brevard Road at 9:00 AM, arrange carpooling and leave by 9:15. It is a 53 mile (one hour-twenty minute drive to the trailhead - we will be taking a car to the trail beginning for the shuttle). With the driving and hiking, my guess is we'll be back to Ingles around 5:00 or so. That is just an estimate so please do not have other engagements we need to rush back for.
