Craggy Gardens Hike

(9 AM - 1 PM)
Event Sponsor: Western NC Chapter

Craggy Gardens
We will do two short hikes. The first will start at the visitor center. According to the Hike WNC website the hike is an easy 1.5 mile hike through a high-elevation Northern Hardwood forest to a Heath Bald, and finally into a Grassy Summit. We will return to the center for restrooms and then drive a short distance to the parking area for second hike.  The second hike is a 1.4-mile roundtrip hike 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.

Directions:
We will meet at 9:00 at the Craggy Gardens Visitor Center. From Asheville, take the Blue Ridge Parkway north 18 miles past the Folk Art Center. Pass the road to the picnic area, and after about three miles, park at the Visitor Center.
