was such a great success back in June, that we have decided to have a fall Hike to Health on October 23
. Be sure to save-the-date for the hiking event of the season that you will not want to miss.
Our second Hike to Health will take place at Chimney Rock State Park
in Chimney Rock, N.C. We will be offering three different hikes to accommodate all skill levels:
1) Great Woodland Adventure
- .6 mile guided trail which includes 12 discovery stations for kids and the kids-at-heart
2) Hickory Nut Falls Trail
- leisurely .75 mile hike to the base of the 404 ft. tall Hickory Nut Falls (one of the highest waterfalls east of the Mississippi River) (1.5 total round trip hike)
3) Four Seasons Trail
- moderate to strenuous trail which starts at the meadows parking area and runs all the way to the top of the mountain (with access to Hickory Nut Falls) - Four Seasons Trail alone is .6 miles, once it connects to Hickory Nut Falls Trail this adds on an additional .5 miles, making for a total round trip of approximately 2.2 miles
to view a Chimney Rock trail map for more information.
Stay tuned for more details about this event and for registration to open in September. Get your boots ready, we're going hiking again!
