Pacolet Area Conservancy (PAC) will start its series of five area hikes this fall on Sept. 30. PAC’s first hike will head to Bent Creek experimental forest for a six-mile, easy-to-moderate hike on the Hardtimes Loop.
On Oct. 14, hikers will head to Lookout Rock, located on the grounds of Montreat College near Asheville, N.C. Here, hikers will conquer a 4.7-mile, moderate-to-strenuous hike in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
On Oct. 28, hikers venture to John Rock, in Pisgah National Forest, for a five-mile strenuous hike with views of Looking Glass Rock.
On Nov. 2, PAC offers a 1.2-mile easy-to-moderate, interpretive hike at the PAC Protected Weaverbarton Shuford Memorial Wildlife Sanctuary located near Columbus.
The finale of the fall hiking series, Nov. 11, takes hikers to PAC Protected Walnut Creek Preserve for a four-mile, moderate hike on the private preserve.
