2021 Elk Hollow Fall Foliage Hike

October 17 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Date: Sunday, October 17

Time: 11:00 am – 2:00 pm  

Where: Elk Hollow Preserve in Roaring Creek, North Carolina 

Distance: 1.4 Miles

Difficulty: Easy to moderate (3-4)

Join us on Sunday, October 17, for a pleasant stroll through the Elk Hollow Preserve on the Everett J. Bowman Trail and soak in the views of peak leaf season. The trail will lead us through beautiful forests of oaks, maples, and beech trees, as well as early successional meadows perfect for bird spotting. The Preserve boasts a bounty of rare wildlife, including Golden-winged Warblers, Southern Appalachian brook trout, and least weasels. The walk will culminate at a stunning cascading waterfall. Here we will rest and take in the beauty around us. The colorful foliage above and the musical hum of the falls. The flutter of bird wings and the scampering of chipmunks. After resting and enjoying the falls, we will begin our walk back down the meadow road facing views of the Appalachian mountains. 

 

We hope you can join us as we walk through one of the most remarkable properties SAHC manages. We encourage you to bring a lunch and expect a relaxed hike focused on enjoying the sights and sounds of the property. 

 

Note: The Elk Hollow Preserve is an hour and a half drive north of Asheville. Please plan accordingly!
