Friday Morning Hike - Warren Wilson Swannanoa River Trail

THIS IS THE SAME HIKE AS THIS WEEK'S MONDAY MORNING HIKE.

Please turn off cell phones during this hike.

WEATHER POLICY: Hike not cancelled for weather conditions unless they pose a hazard such as icy roads or thunderstorms. You can find an excellent forecast the night before a hike at: weather.gov and enter 28801 in the zip code search feature. If the forecast does not suit you, change your RSVP status to "No" at least one hour before meetup time.

DIRECTIONS: Meetup at Ingles at junction of Tunnel Rd (US-70) and Riceville Rd, across from VA hospital. Find us in the far corner of the main parking lot nearest the Ingles gas station. Form carpools and leave no later than 9:10 for Owen Park. If meeting us at Owen Park let us know with a comment.

Trail is easy, follows the Swannanoa River. An out and back hike, about 4.5 miles total, walked at a moderate pace. Dogs must be on leash. We should be back to Ingles before noon.

    It was a bit chilly when we started out but the nice pace kept us warm. Thanks to bill for leading the hike.

    my only concern is why do people wait so late to dump off the hike not giving much time for the waitlisted people to get notice. I wish folks would stop doing this. if the hike is limited please be thoughtful to remove yourself so others may join in. thanks
    thanks Bill for the wonderful hike today...:)pic to follow

    Well, haven't heard back re carpool, and it's too late now to get the required sleep, so I hope everyone has a great time, and look forward to meeting some of you on a future hike! There's also a very nice electric guitar I'm hoping to buy tomorrow, that is a priority to attend to!! :O) Have a great day, and happy new year!!

    Hello everyone! If by some miracle I am able to wake up early enough to make it, is there by chance anyone in the Woodfin/N Asheville area, or downtown that would be willing to let me ride with them? At 10mpg, and funds limited right now, my driving costs really add up! Hoping that, with such a group of nature lovers, I will not be scorned for wanting to preserve some of our fossil fuels, and keep the air a little cleaner by carpooling... :O)) Please let me know soon!! Thanks...
