This past weekend, our GetHiking! North Carolina’s Classic Hikes group hit fall perfection on a doubleheader in the Nantahala National Forest of far western North Carolina. Neither day was there a cloud in the sky, neither day did the temperature get much past 60. And if the color wasn’t peak, then it was just approaching — or just descending.
Today, we share shots from Sunday’s trek through Panthertown Valley, a 10-mile (8 for some) loop that included several falls, including Schoolhouse; brushed the base of the Great Wall; caught some rays on the exposed slickrock of Little Green Mountain; explored the fertile Panthertown Valley; and enjoyed the best views of the valley from atop Blackrock Mountain.
Tomorrow, we’ll trot out the slide projector and share our pics from the Bartram Trail. It’s a slideshow we’re pretty sure you won’t invent an excuse to miss.
