    Leader: Nicole Mazgaj
    Distance: 10.5 miles
    Difficulty: R-26, Moderate
    Elevation Gain: 1,500 ft.
    Description: This is one of my favorite hikes, especially at this time of year, with the dying summer making way for the beauties of the fall in our mountains. It combines gentle walking on the Virginia Creeper trail along a beautiful babbling stream and hiking up and down in the deep woods on the Appalachian Trail, with some open vistas. This is a relatively moderate hike and suitable for anybody with some experience walking in the mountains. We will start from the small Taylor’s Valley community, walk on the Creeper for about 3 and ½ miles, and pick up the AT, which we will follow for about 6 miles, back to Taylors Valley. Please call, email, or text NO LATER THAN 6:00 PM ON FRIDAY at the contact info shown above for meeting time(s) and places(s). 10.5 miles, 1500 ft [R26]

    Description: This lovely hike will begin with a stroll along the Linville River, then take your breath away— literally, during the tough climb to the top— and figuratively when enjoying the many dramatic views of Lake James and the South Mountains, then Shining Rock Wilderness, the Black Mountains, and Linville Gorge. Group size is limited to 10 in this wilderness area, 11 miles, 2600 ft, [R-36]

    Type of Outing: Paddle
    When: SAT 10/1/2022 9:30 AM
    Signup Deadline: 5:00 pm
    Leader: Tom Taylor
    Distance: 10 miles
    Description: Meet 9:30 at the Independence Boat Launch (Google maps will direct you there). If the Jefferson NC gauge (https://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis/uv?03161000) is between 300 and 1000, we'll shuttle up river to the Bridle Creek Bridge Access for a more adventurous/whitewater 10-mile paddle. If over or under that range, we'll put in at Independence and paddle the deeper 12-mile section to Galax (Baywood Access). I'll communicate which section the previous day; both are quite scenic & enjoyable!
