North Carolina High Peaks Trail Association Hike to Beauty Spot
The North Carolina High Peaks Trail Association will be hiking to Beauty Spot and Unaka Mountain Saturday November 2nd on a strenous six-mile hike that will include a climb and descent of roughly 1,000 feet. The hike will cross a series of balds beginning at Beauty Spot and going up Unaka Mountain before branching off on Red Fork Road to take in the views from the Unaka Mountain Overlook, then return back to Beauty Spot. If you would like to go with them on the hike meet at the Town Square at 8:30am. Transportation will be provided by Yancey County Transportation for a $5 fee per person. Leashed dogs are welcome on the hike, but if you bring them along you'll have to drive because they are not allowed on the vans. Be sure to bring a lunch, plenty of water, and warm clothes or rain gear if rain is forecast that day.
