Short Hikes

Joyce Kilmer (NC)
A wonderful 2 mile loop that takes you back to a time of primeval, old growth forests. Take a hike inside a terrarium surrounded by ferns, moss and huge trees. You might be tempted to take another trip around the loop!



Rabun Bald (Ga.)
At 4696 feet, Rabun Bald is second highest point in Georgia. The 14,000-acre preserve is located on a ridge-top within a few miles of the Georgia - North Carolina border. Surrounded on all sides by the vacation homes of the well heeled, Rabun Bald truly is an oasis for the eyes.

Max Patch
Incredible views and short drive from I-40, there is a lot to like about Max Patch. See why this is a great place to hike in the Spring or Fall.


The Bald Zone
Maintained by the North Carolina Nature Conservancy, Yellow Mountain is a fine example of a Southern Appalachian bald. Join us on a guided hike during the height of the wildflower blooms
