Mountains-to-Sea Trail Bent Creek to Hwy 25

Meet at the Bent Creek parking area, next to the French Broad River at 9 a.m. We'll leave by 9:10 via shuttle to a spot on the Blue Ridge parkway where we'll pick up the trail. To get to the Bent Creek parking area, take Hwy 191, past the Biltmore Square Mall towards the NC Arboretum. Go past the entrance to the Arboretum and turn left into the parking area by the river.

Mountains-to-Sea-Trail hikes are designed for fitness and community among already experienced hikers.  We repeat the same trails weekly so that, over time, we enjoy the beauty of each trail.  We limit our hikes to two hours because many of us work and have to be somewhere else by 11:15 or so.  Thus, it's not possible to wait for slower hikers.  We shuttle, so if someone is slower, the group would have to wait in order to give a ride back to the starting point.  Thus, the need to be on the same page with regard to hiking pace.

Hikers who are new to hiking will likely be more comfortable on another meet up hike designed for people who are just beginning hiking or trying to get into shape for hiking.  You might consider "WNC Easy Hikers Group," for instance.
