Meet at Nature Center
Tuesday, July 18
Half Day – Brushy Mountain Moderate with Strenuous sections. Pace: Fast
Full Day -- Graybeard Mountain
Moderate; 11.9 miles total; 3000’ gain.
We’ll take the Graybeard Trail to the Walker’s Knob hiking shelter. After a snack and a quick side trip to enjoy the view from Walker’s Knob we’ll continue climbing the Graybeard Trail to the top of Graybeard Mountain, the highest point in Montreat. Excellent views (north toward Mount Mitchell) and wild country make this a truly memorable hike. After lunch at the summit we’ll backtrack to Montreat.
