Butter Gap/Art Loeb/Cat Gap Loop approx. 8+ Miles

Meet at Ingles on Brevard Rd. across from the Biltmore Square Mall at 8:30am, to meet & greet and arrange carpooling to the Fish Hatchery.  We will leave promptly at 8:45am.  We should be to the Fish Hatchery at 9:30am.  (If you ride with someone, please give them cash for driving.)

This hike will be over 8 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 possibly John Rock trail, depending on how everyone is doing.  The trails will go along streams, a waterfall, and we will go along the base of Cedar Rock Mtn.  

If we have the time (and energy), we will take the John Rock trail to viewpoint there. 


This IS a dog friendly hike (:P Chad).

Bring plenty of water and food.  Layers are good since it will be cold to start and warm up through the day.
