Hello! Welcome to hiking in Western North Carolina. As a recent transplant from the flat plains of Texas, I am amazed by the mountains. As soon as I arrived I started hiking and learned (usually the hard way) the different levels of trails, which areas are safe to hike alone and which you should tackle with friends. This blog will allow you to come with me on my adventures, learn from my mistakes, and give you the information needed to plan your next hike!
