Location: Montreat, NC

Date: Saturday, July 7th

Time: 9:00 am

Difficulty: Strenuous (7-8)

Leader: Emily Adler, SAHC Americorps Outreach Associate & Thom Green, Hemlock Restoration Initiative Outreach Associate

Join SAHC and the Hemlock Restoration Initiative (HRI) on a hike to explore some beautiful  Carolina hemlocks in the Montreat Wilderness, on which SAHC holds a 2,460-acre conservation easement. We will learn about Carolina hemlock ecosystems, the hemlock woolly adelgid, and current options and efforts to control the adelgid.  The hike will be about 4.5 miles, we will be walking along a ridge and will summit 3 different peaks, be prepared for about 1000 ft of elevation change and some steep uphills and downhills.  The loop will take us through a stand of Carolina & Eastern Hemlocks and eventually to the top of Lookout Mountain!
