Crabtree Falls will be the destination of the next hike led by the NC High Peaks Trail Association, set for Saturday, Jan. 5. Hikers should meet at the Town Square at 9:30 am or at Dennis and Nancy Smith’s house, 4 High View Trail at the T intersection with 7 Mile Ridge Rd. off Rte. 80, at 10 am. This is an easy, dog friendly hike, about one hour to the falls, 30 minutes there, and another hour back to the Smith house, where there will be food and fellowship.
Hikers are invited to bring side dishes and non-hikers are invited to stay at the house and watch TV until the hikers return.
