Outdoor hiking challenge

Published 9:23 am Wednesday, August 17, 2011

Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy (CMLC) is challenging outdoor enthusiasts to support land conservation by hiking.
Those who complete eight hikes will earn a badge of honor: CMLC’s exclusive white squirrel embroidered hiking patch. Those who complete the challenge will also earn a $20 gift certificate for free hiking gear at the Hendersonville location of the Mast General Store.
There is no deadline to complete the eight hikes. Challenge hikes may be completed individually or as part of monthly guided outings.
“CMLC works very hard to protect our beautiful mountain lands and facilitate access for people to enjoy them. We believe that by getting out and exploring these places, you will discover why land conservation is so important,” says CMLC executive director Kieran Roe. “You’ll have a lot of fun doing it, too.”
