Easy 2.4-mile in-out hike with little elevation change
Roan Mountain Rhododendron Gardens
State Rd 1348 , Bakersville NC 28705
Leader: Vic Hasler, 423-416-3166
Access to the Rhododendron Gardens parking area in the Roan Mountain area closes after this Saturday. An easy hike rewarded with expansive vistas from the Roan High Bluff viewing platform. Due to the pandemic, let’s meet at parking lot by 10:15 am. There is a $3 entry fee for day use, so have some cash to pay the USFS. Wear comfortable walking shoes and appropriate clothing (noting that the temperature is 10-15oF cooler than the cities). Bring water, snack, and camera. We’ll meander along to visit the two overlooks, then return to the vehicles. If interested, we can have lunch in Roan Mountain. Return time is mid-afternoon. For further information, check this TEHCC Trail Wiki link to Cloudland Trail. Please call/text me to know headcount in case of last-minute changes.
Bookings are closed for this event.
