You are invited to join us on Saturday, June 4, 2016 for our annual National Trails Day Guided Hike in Panthertown.
American Hiking Society’s National Trails Day® is the country’s largest celebration of trails. Make sure you don’t miss out on this fun and casual exploration of Panthertown Valley led by Friends of Panthertown volunteers. Group size is limited. Call (828) 269-HIKE (4453) for more info or send an e-mail to RSVP.
Everyone is welcome. Some hiking experience is recommended. There is no fee to participate, although donations are appreciated. Hikers should meet at the Salt Rock trailhead (located at end of Breedlove Road in Cashiers) at 9:30am to join Friends of Panthertown guides on a loop hike into Panthertown Valley. We expect to hike 5-6 miles on moderate to intermediate trails (subject to group experience) and be back to the parking lot by 2pm. Don’t forget to wear appropriate footwear, bring plenty of water to keep you hydrated, rain gear (just in case), snacks, and a lunch to enjoy on the trail.
