News & Events: Hikes And Outings


Join Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy for an extremely strenuous 3-mile hike on the East Fork Headwaters section of the Foothills Trail. This is a CMLC Hiking Challenge Hike. The hike is an out and back involving roughly 1,200 feet of elevation gain. This hike is recommended for experienced hikers only, and attendees are advised to wear proper hiking gear. CMLC began conservation efforts on the East Fork Headwaters in 2010, and the land we will be hiking on is the first section of conserved land in the area. CMLC Land Protection Director Tom Fanslow will be along to answer questions about this keystone property. If you’re up to the challenge, please join us!
