(8:00AM - 3:00PM)
Event Sponsor: Western NC Chapter

“Hike this double-summit, ultra-scenic five-mile loop on the Art Loeb and Ivestor Gap trails, summiting Black Balsam Knob and Tennent Mountain. It’s a sun-drenched, blueberry and blackberry-filled adventure over two bald mountains to some incredible views.”  The 5.1 mile roundtrip hike is rated moderate. Weather can change quickly especially at these elevations so come prepared and bring plenty of water and food. After the hike we can visit the hanging bog at Wolf Mt. overlook along the BRP.


We will meet at 8:00 at the parking area on the Art Loeb Trail trailhead, located halfway down Black Balsam Knob Road from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Do not go all the way to the end of the road! Look for the NCNPS sign at the parking area. Parking can fill up quickly, so you may want to come a little early to get a spot!
