90 Second Escape: Hiking down into the Green River Narrows

Monday — never an easy time for the outdoors enthusiast. After a weekend of adventure, returning to the humdrum work-a-day world can make one melancholy. To help ease the transition, every Monday we feature a 90 Second Escape — essentially, a 90-second video of a place you’d probably rather be: a trail, a park, a greenway, a lake … anywhere as long as it’s not under a fluorescent bulb.

Today’s 90-Second Escape: Hiking down into the Green River Narrows

It’s not a long hike, less than two miles. But step for step it’s about as wild as it gets, this drop down into the Green River Narrows south of Asheville. You wouldn’t guess as much on the drive in on gently rolling country roads. But just beyond those roads, the countryside drops off precipitously, offering one of the craziest hikes around. (The last quarter mile or so involves the use of a rope for rappelling.)

Ah, but the payoff … . Well, the payoff was the subject of our Escape on June 25. Check out today’s hike in, then find out what’s going in the Narrows, here.
