Time: Starting at 6:00pm

Where: SAHC Community Farm

Distance: 2.5 miles

Difficulty: Moderate. Several steep inclines are present on the trail.

Cost: Free for Members. $10 for non-members. 

Come watch the sunset with the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy on our beautiful Community Farm!

Our Community Farm is a 140-acre educational and working farm just outside Asheville. The farm is a continually evolving home for conservation projects and agricultural production. Highlighted by our stream restoration project, shortleaf pine reforestation project, farm incubator program, and education center, there is always something new to see.

Participants will enjoy golden hour from the The Discovery Trail, in a 2.5-mile loop allowing us to view all of the amazing farm projects before returning to the parking area before sundown. Participants are welcome to bring snacks and a camera to enjoy while overlooking the farm and surrounding mountains.

Please note that our Community Farm is an active farm not open to the public unless accompanied by SAHC staff. To ensure safety, staff capacity, and a positive experience for everyone involved it is critical that ALL hike participants pre-register for events before visiting the farm. You will receive an email with specific information about where to meet on the farm and other necessary details. If you do not receive this email, as well as a confirmation email following your registration, we do not have you registered for the hike. The majority of this hike is not disability accessible. 

If you have any questions, please reach out to travis@appalachian.org.
