* Let's Talk 2021 *

Section Hike on the CDT

Rocky Mountains - Colorado

July 2021 (TBD)

This will be an epic trip! CDT stands for Continental Divide Trail. The tentative plan is to hike 51 miles, which will include summiting two peaks above 14k.

Lots of planning to be done. Travel plans to and from Colorado. Total days spent in Colorado and total days hiking. Climate and altitude acclimatization, water sources, and campsite altitudes.

30.1 Mile Art Loeb Trail

TBD

This is one of the toughest hikes in North Carolina. We will begin at the Davison River campsite, and end at Daniel Boone campsite. This requires 3 full days of hiking. This one is more tentative than the others.

Waterfall Loop at Black Balsam Knob

June 2021 (TBD)

Begins via the Art Loeb Spur trail from the Black Balsam Knob parking area. We will hike through Graveyard Fields on our way to our first waterfall. This is a two-night trip with potential swimming opportunities. Potentially a tough hike, but worth it.

Two Nights at Mt. Mitchell

July or August 2021

This is a beautiful area with great campsites, and an easy introduction to our club. This will be a Noon arrival for day one and hike about 2.5 miles to camp Maple Bald. Day two is a leisurely sleep-in morning, followed by 3 miles to Commissary Hill campsite, including a lunch stop. We will arrive at Commissary Hill early, so there will be opportunities for further day hiking on day two if desired. Day three is an easy 1.6 miles back to our vehicles.
