Benefit Hike Will Support Local Animal Rescue and Conservation Work

Attention pet parents and pet lovers! Tails and Trails, a hike for people and pups, will take place at Bearwallow Mountain on April 4, 2020 at 10 a.m. Proceeds from this event will directly support Blue Ridge Humane Society and Conserving Carolina. All are welcome, even if you do not have a pet!

The 2-mile roundtrip hike will take you to a nearly 360 degree view of the Blue Ridge Mountains, atop a privately-owned property protected permanently from development by Conserving Carolina. Bearwallow Mountain forms part of the upper rim of the Hickory Nut Gorge and features a scenic, grassy meadow at the summit, making it the perfect location for a group hike and picnic spot.
