Details

Please join us for a 13.5 mile day hike along the Appalachian Trail from Sam's Gap to Spivey Gap. This section of the trail follows along the state border of North Carolina and Tennessee and the start and end point is within 30 miles of Asheville, NC.

This hike will include several exceptional sites including Big Bald (elevation 5516ft, a treeless summit with 360 degree views), Big Stamp, and High Rocks. We will stop at the Bald Mtn Shelter for a snack and rest. Most of the first half the section will be uphill and the last half will be mostly downhill.

We will shuttle cars to the end point and then go to the start and hike as a group.

Please bring snacks, water, whistle, rain gear, warm clothes.

We can stop in Asheville on the way home for a beer!
