Sunday Stroll on Loop Trail at The Orchard- Sept 30

 
The Orchard at Altapass will be the site of NC High Peaks Trail Association’s next Sunday stroll, Sept. 30, with a two mile meander through the apple orchards, ending with an opportunity to purchase ice cream, apple cider and snacks and listen to music and dance.
 
This is a child and dog friendly outing, but pets need to be on leashes. Clean-up bags will be provided.
 
Hikers should meet at the Burnsville Town Square for car pooling at 1 or at the Orchard at 1:45. The Orchard is on the Blue Ridge Parkway, at mile marker 328 just a few miles north of the junction with SR 226. The trail head begins in the parking area to the north (left) of the Barn. Good shoes and hiking poles are recommended, as there are several small water crossings.
 
More information on the stroll can be had by calling hike leaders Worth and Susan Weller at 828-682-5099 or by visiting the club’s web site at nchighpeaks.org or by following the club on Facebook.
