“After hiking Tennent Mountain and Black Balsam my wife, Shelley, and I continued on to Investor Gap Trail to the parking lot and then up to Sam Knob on an out-and-back. When we arrived at the peak we were caught in a rain storm.”

SAHC works to conserve the unique plant and animal habitat, clean water, farmland, scenic beauty, and places for people to enjoy outdoor recreation in the mountains of North Carolina and Tennessee for the benefit of present and future generations. We achieve this by forging and maintaining long-term conservation relationships with private landowners and public agencies, owning and managing land and encouraging healthy local communities.
