We invite you to join us for a memorial hike to honor and remember our friend Bill Popper and his dedication to preserving the 573-acre Prices Creek Preserve in Yancey County that he loved so much.

This hike is a perennial favorite, taking participants through our Price’s Creek Preserve where an astounding array of ephemeral wildflowers can be found this time of year. Participants will hike through mature northern hardwood forest along a trail following the babbling Price’s Creek. Midway along the trail – a spur trail leads up to a picturesque cascade where we will stop for a leisurely picnic lunch.

NOTE: Due to limited parking availability, we will be hard capping this hike at 12 participants. Please register each party member individually to ensure we do not go over this number.

We will meet at a public parking area before carpooling to Price’s Creek Preserve. If you are willing to be a driver, please let me know in the comments section of your registration.

If you would like to learn more about Bill Popper and his passion for this land that he loved, please read our recent memorial here. 

This hike is currently full. If you would like to be added to the waitlist, please send your name, email, phone number, and emergency contact to katie@appalachian.org. Thank you for being interested in hiking with us!
