Mountains to Sea Trail Hike Rescheduled to Saturday, Dec. 21


After cancellation this week because of bad weather, High Peaks Trail Association will lead a hike Dec. 21 from Buck Creek Gap to Neal’s Creek.

This 6-mile hike is rated moderate. We will follow the Mountains-to-Sea trail from where it crosses South Highway 80, paralleling the Blue Ridge Parkway before descending to Neal’s Creek near the Black Mountain Campground.

Hikers should meet at the Burnsville Town Square at 8:30 a.m. We will carpool from there to Buck Creek Gap, dropping one vehicle at the hike’s ending point. Leashed dogs are welcome and hikers should bring warm clothes, rain gear, plenty of water and a lunch to eat on the trail.
