Stroll at The Orchard- Sunday, August 25

Body: 

Join the High Peaks Trail Association for a stroll at the historic Orchard at Altapass on Sunday Aug. 25. This moderate 2-mile hike will wind through the 100-year-old apple orchard, offering spectacular views from the crest of the Blue Ridge near Spruce Pine.
 
Hikers will assemble at the Burnsville Town Square at 1 p.m., with transportation provided by a county van for a modest fee of $5 per person. No pets are allowed on the county vans. After the hike we will visit the Orchard’s barn and store, where hikers will get a chance to sample tasty delights like fudge and apple pie while listening to live bluegrass music.
 
The van should return to the Town Square around 4 p.m. For more information, contact stroll leader Mike Williams at 675-9384 or mikew3000@gmail.com.
