Join the Pacolet Area Conservancy (PAC) for five Friday hikes offered this fall, free of charge. Starting Sept. 20, PAC’s first hike will head to the Pink Beds in Pisgah National Forest (Pisgah District), a 5.4-mile, easy/moderate loop hike around a mountain bog located in a unique, relatively flat, high-elevation valley.
On Oct. 4, hikers will head to Table Rock State Park for a 7-mile, moderate/strenuous out and back trek to Bald Rock Overlook to enjoy unobscured views of the Piedmont of South Carolina from the edge of the Blue Ridge Escarpment.
Just in time for the splendor of autumn leaf colors, on Oct. 18, hikers venture to Pisgah National Forest (Pisgah District) for a 6.2-mile, moderate/strenuous out and back hike up Looking Glass Rock.
On Nov. 1, the Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy (CMLC) will host PAC on a joint hike at the CMLC protected property, Bearwallow, a 2-mile, moderate/strenuous out and back hike with an almost 360-degree vista at the summit, perfect for enjoying autumn in the mountains.
