High Peaks Leads Easy Stroll Near Neal's Creek August 23

08/23/2015 1:00 pm

Join the N.C. High Peaks Trail Association Sunday, Aug. 23 for an easy stroll near Neal’s Creek and the Black Mountain Campground. The jaunt will follow a newly-built section of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail recently completed by club volunteers, and will end at a 30-foot rustic bridge constructed by volunteers to span the rushing mountain stream.

Strollers should assemble on the Burnsville Town Square at 1 p.m. The group will car-pool to the trail, about a 30-minute drive. The 1.5-mile walk is rated as easy, with only about a 100-foot elevation gain.

Please bring water, a snack and rain gear just in case the weather does not cooperate. Please check the club’s website, www.nchighpeaks.org, or Facebook page for last-minute changes due to weather.  For more information, contact Stroll Leader Jake Blood at nchighpeaks@gmail.com or 284-6878.
