Graveyard Ridge/Graveyard Fields EXPLORATORY 6+ miles Moderate

We will access trail 440 from Looking Glass Overlook (approx. MP 417) on BRP and follow up along Graveyard Ridge returning along trails 356/356A/358C/358B and 440. Will go by Seconds Falls, parts of Graveyard Fields may have bunch of people but hopefully not too bad on the ridge trail part. Mileage is an estimate. If someone has done this and knows more about the trail, please post

Meet at Ingles across from Biltmore Square. Second meet up is BiLo Brevard (64/280/276) at 9:15.

May be moderate to strenuous, don't know, haven't done this hike.

I KEEP A BRISK PACE

Flexible attitude required

Weather uncertain, that's normal, we go unless severe lighting.

Looking forward to great day Sunday

Thanks - Craig

      Interesting difference in your mileage and mine. Maybe I paced back and forth in the parking lot alot while waiting fir the AVL group....

      Yeah. Could be we've got different logging setting going on? There are 3-4 way that a GPS can take points and track a trail. All of them have pros and cons and all result in slightly different distances. Do you know what yours is set at?

    Crap....this is ridiculous...work is interfering again. I don't think I'll ever see you guys again unless you come see me and buy some of my cheese!! Good thing I'm liking my job a lot. I'll be thinking of you all and wishing I was there.

    UPDATE: ASHEVILLE GROUP IS MEETING AT 9:00AM.
    If you would like to carpool from Asheville:

    Please meet me at Ingles across from Biltmore Square Mall at 9:00AM. We will leave promptly at 9:15AM to get to the Looking Glass Overlook at 10:00AM. Look for a blue Subaru Outback in the back of the lot (nearest to Brevard Road). As Debra suggested, please post here if you will be meeting at Ingles so we know who to expect (Bryan and Debra, I've got you on the list).

    See you tomorrow!

    Ingle's meet up IS AT 9:00 and Rebekah will bring group to the Looking Glass Overlook on BRP. If you want to meet at BiLo Brevard be there at 9:00 also and we will meet group at Looking Glass. weather is suppose to clear tonight and nice tomorrow.

  • Bryan S.

    I will be at Ingles on Brevard Rd. Are we meeting there at 8:30 or 9:00?

    September 21, 2013

  • Debra

    Maybe we should post which meeting spot we plan to meet, Ingles or BiLo. That way we'll know who to wait for. If we meet at Ingles at 9 and leave by 9:15, that should get us to the overlook by 10. I'll go to Ingles.

    If anyone would like to carpool from Asheville:

    Let's meet at the Ingles across from Biltmore Square Mall at 8:15. We will leave promptly at 8:30 to get to BiLo at 9:00. Look for a blue Subaru Outback in the back of the parking lot (closer to Brevard Road).

    September 21, 2013

    • Rebekah

      Probably, what time do you want to be at the overlook? It would take us about 45 minute to get to the overlook from Asheville.

      September 21, 2013

    • Debra

      Definitely faster to take BRP from 191 to Looking Glass Overlook for those of us meeting at Ingles on 191.

      September 21, 2013

  • ronald e.

    I thought meet up was at ingles at 900

    What part of the parking lot will you meet? What/who do I look for?

    September 19, 2013

    • craig de c.

      usually on the right side, look for bunch of people in hiking shoes.
