Please join in this special collaboration hike between SAHC and our partners at Pathways to Parks! The vision of Pathways to Parks is to motivate Americans of color to get outdoors and enjoy the benefits of nature in our national, state, and local parks while creating more accessible spaces for everyone. Help us support Pathways to Parks founders, Pender and Tanya Marie by joining them on this special waterfall hike. This hike will start from the Nilsen Homestead and end at Little Cove Creek Falls at the boundary of the Cherokee National Forest. Expect to enjoy a slow meander through SAHC protected land with frequent stops along the way to discuss stress reduction techniques. Participants on this hike will traverse through fields, verdant forests, and visit a charming waterfall before returning back to their cars. The hike is 1.5 hours northeast of Asheville near Roan Mountain, Tennessee.
This hike will begin and end at the same location as the Drop-In Social and will conclude with drinks and refreshments! Come ready to hike 2 miles in total and plan to stay afterward to enjoy celebrating the Highlands of Roan with the rest of the June Jamboree participants.
