CRAGGY GARDENS WILDFLOWER HIKE(9:00AM - 3:00PM)
Event Sponsor: Western NC Chapter
We will start at the Craggy Gardens picnic area and follow the Mountain-to-the-Sea Trail to where it crosses the BRP near the Graybeard Mt. Overlook. This will be about a 3 mile hike. At the end of the hike we can do an optional and short hike, 1.4-mile roundtrip, to the top of the 5,892-foot summit Craggy Pinnacle at Craggy Gardens. At the top is a spectacular 360-degree view of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Please wear sturdy shoes, bring raingear, plenty of water, and snacks.
We will meet at 9:00 at the Craggy Gardens Picnic area. From Asheville, take the Blue Ridge Parkway north, approximately 15 miles past the Folk Art Center. At milepost 367.6 you will see the sign and road to the Craggy Garden Picnic area. Park and meet near the restrooms. We will run a quick shuttle to the Graybeard Mt. Overlook at MP 363.4 and then start our hike!
