We are a group of like-minded women who share a passion for the outdoors. Hiking is good for body, mind, and soul. Every day in nature is a gift! 100 hikes. No time frame because it’s not a race, it’s about the journey! Join me for one hike or many! Will be leading at least one group day hike per month in different regions of NC and planning other Hikerbabe themed events.
High Shoals loop is a strenuous hike, gaining 975 feet in the first 2.5 miles of just over a five mile loop. There are at least 200+ steep stairs at the beginning but coming down the backside of the loop is much less strenuous though hard on the knees. Recommend retractable poles that you can put in your pack while climbing the stairs because you will need to hold onto the railings at some points but they will come in handy for the rest of the ascent and the decent. Don’t expect too much for views after the waterfalls but you can see some distance near the top.
Hikerbabes! Bring non-perishable food items or $5 and we will donate them to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina. This hike is Moderate and we will hike to Triple Falls, High Falls in a loop and then those interested can do an additional waterfall at the end adding about a mile to Hooker Falls for a total of 5 miles. There are several good picnic areas and we’ll plan to take several breaks, a longer one near High Falls for a lunch break. I hope we can get a lot of babes out for a great cause and prime waterfall views in NC!! Triple Falls Parking
