Plein-air hike

You must bring art materials and at least start a work during this hike.  No spectators please.


Meetup at Ingles, form carpools and depart by 10:10.  Secondary meetup about 10:45 near the Pizza Hut in Bi-Lo shopping center at the junction of US-64, US-276 & NC 280 at the Brevard entrance to Pisgah Forest.

If the weather is good we will drive to the Davidson River fish hatchery and hike 1.9 miles (3.8 miles roundtrip) up to the open rock face of John Rock.  This hike will be steep in places, but gives good long range views of Black Balsam / Shining Rocks and especially Looking Glass Rock.

If the weather is less than ideal we will park along the Davidson River.

Bring a lunch, water and clothing to suit the weather, as well as your art kit.

We should be back to Ingles Brevard Rd by 5:30.

This meetup is highly weather dependent; 24hr notice of cancellation by email.

    Are there some options to where you are thinking of going? I'd love to go to pretty place in SC or overlooks of lake jocassee or lake lure when the days get longer.

    This sounds wonderful Bill! Great idea. It's a shame we have to meet at Ingles and decide the place. I live in Brevard and would hate to make the drive to Asheville if you end up hiking closer to my home.
