High Peaks Heads for Beauty Spot Saturday, June 7


For some of the most spectacular views in the region, join the High Peaks Trail Association for a hike from Beauty Spot to Unaka Mountain on Saturday, June 7.

This moderate hike of 6 miles will traverse a section of the Appalachian Trail that climbs about 750 feet to the spruce-covered summit of Unaka Mountain. The group will retrace its steps to Beauty Spot, which offers exceptional views.

Hikers will assemble at the Burnsville Town Square at 8:30 a.m. and will car pool to the trail head. Leashed dogs are welcome. Bring plenty of water, snacks, lunch and rain gear just in case. Please check the club’s website, www.nchighpeaks.org, or our Facebook page for last-minute changes due to weather.
