Winter 2024

January 7th

Hike: Bearwallow Mountain

Mileage: 2.1

Difficulty: Easy to Medium

Hiking's fun, but it's even better with cows!  Bearwallow Mountain is a quick hike with priceless views.  With a steep but short ascension along a mountainside, hikers quickly reach the mountain's bald summit.  Being privately owned land, the mountainside is sometimes covered in cattle.  Enjoy views of the surrounding vistas and carefully dodge piles of manure.  This is a must-do hike for Asheville locals and tourists alike.

January 21st

Hike: Moore Cove

Mileage: 1.2

Difficulty: Easy

Moore Cove is gorgeous year-round.  This easy-to-access Pisgah National Forest waterfall guides hikers along a meandering forest path.  With a short, 0.6 mile trek, hikers can quickly reach this waterfall.  Easy to walk behind... or even stand under, Moore Cove Falls is the perfect hike for families.

February 4th

Hike: Triple & High Falls
Mileage: 3.3

Difficulty: Medium

Beautiful even in the winter, a tour of Triple and High Falls exposes hikers to a plethora of water features and the beauty of Dupont State Forest.  Beginning almost immediately from the parking area for Hooker Falls and Triple Falls, the Triple and High Falls tour guides hikers past the base of Triple Falls, up to the covered bridge above High Falls, then to an access point at High Falls base for swimming and fishing.

February 18th

Hike: Raven Cliff Falls

Mileage: 3.8

Difficulty: Medium

Not far from the North Carolina and South Carolina Border, Caesar's Head State Park features numerous vistas and waterfalls.  Raven Cliff Falls Trail, a shorter hike, guides hikers along a heavily wooded trail toward a viewpoint highlighting a waterfall.  Hikers simultaneously see stunning panoramas of the distant mountains while also enjoying a view of Raven Cliff Falls.  Located near Pretty Place, this area is gorgeous to visit.

March 3rd

Hike: Twin Falls
Mileage: 4

Difficulty: Easy to Medium

This hike includes two separate waterfalls - both within sight of one another.  Deeply secluded in Pisgah National Forest, this peaceful and mostly flat trail guides hikers through rhododendron tunnels and across meandering streams.  After two miles, hikers reach a vantage point that allows them to see both waterfalls.  Somewhat accessible, hikers can reach the base of one waterfall, or even stand underneath.
