No introduction yet
You can't to Potts Cove. The trail from the end of the road to Potts Cove is at least two miles.
If you're looking for a 4 mile loop, check out the lower section of the East Ridge. Up Lookout to East Ridge, north to Sourwood Gap, and then back on the Trestle to Lookout crosses three peaks and is right at 4 miles.
Hey David ... the paddling groups I'm familiar with are the Western Carolina Paddlers, Foothills Paddler Club, and Carolina Canoe Club. Roll sessions are Friday evenings at the YMCA on Woodfin St., but they may be wrapping up soon.
Hi David - if you google 'ten essentials' you can easily find a list (or several lists). For more advanced hikes, I prefer that people take responsibility for finding out what they need to bring, rather than telling them... in my experience as a hike leader, I find that people tend to be more prepared if they have to do a bit of this work/research on their own. Active vs passive learning, basically.
Bought some brand new hiking shoes today -- they have soles and everything! Diamond Brand has 20% off on everything this week. See you next time.
Hey David! I haven't seen you since your trip to Thailand (hope it was lovely), as the book club parted ways shortly afterwards. I've been meaning to re-read Tolle's book. Hope to see you out on some hikes, esp. this fall when the colors make me feel like I'm hiking in a bowl of Fruit Loops.
