Join the High Peaks Trail Association for a mid-winter outing when we hike from the Celo Community to Crabtree Falls on Feb. 1. The hike will end with food and fellowship at the home of Dennis and Nancy Smith.
Please join us at 9 AM on Friday, January 10th for our monthly Board Meeting. All members and visitors are welcome. Location: Appalachian Java on West Main St. in Burnsville. Come share a cup of coffee and see what we're up to! We always welcome input on our hiking and trail maintenance activities.
The High Peaks Trail Association will lead walkers on a stroll around downtown Burnsville on Sunday, Dec. 29, with a focus on local history. Hike leader and amateur historian Jake Blood will point out local landmarks of historical significance, while providing fascinating anecdotes and details from our community’s colorful past.
The 1.5-mile stroll will be at a leisurely pace, but walkers should dress appropriately for our winter weather. The group will gather on the Burnsville Town Square at 1 p.m., returning there after the 2-hour stroll.
If you want to get in shape before the upcoming holiday season of over-indulgence, join the High Peaks Trail Association for a jaunt from Buck Creek Gap to Neal's Creek.
This 6-mile hike is rated moderate. We will follow the Mountains-to-Sea trail from where it crosses South Highway 80, paralleling the Blue Ridge Parkway before descending to Neal's Creek near the Black Mountain Campground.
