Join High Peaks for Stroll Near Grandfather Mountain Friday, Sept. 10

Join High Peaks for a moderate 5-mile loop stroll on the Boone Fork Trail just off the Blue Ridge Parkway near Grandfather Mountain on Friday, Sept. 10. The trail features Hebron Falls, a gorgeous waterfall.

Strollers can do the whole loop or go out as far as they want and turn around to make a shorter trip. The elevation gain is about 500 feet and the stroll is rated as moderate. The trailhead is about an hour drive from Burnsville.

Gather at the Julian Price Picnic Area at MM 296.5 on the Parkway at 10 a.m. Bring lunch, plenty of water, rain gear and hiking poles if you use them. Leashed dogs are allowed on the hike.

The outing is limited to 12, so contact stroll leader Carolyn Raichle at 407-619-6136 to reserve your slot or for more information.

As always, check the High Peaks Facebook page or website, www.nchighpeaks.org, for last-minute changes due to weather.
