    Anna Klein reviewed Catawba Falls Trail

    13 days ago

    Easy, short hike to pretty waterfalls. Low effort, high yield. Large parking lot right at the trail head. Way too crowded on a weekend though, I passed seriously no less than a hundred people coming and going. Very muddy as well because of recent rains. If you’re coming to Asheville from the east this would be a great pit stop (a couple miles off I-40) but I otherwise wouldn’t go out of my way to hike it again.

    Challenging trail, lots of rocks and roots. We got to Mount Mitchell and the observation deck but it was too cloudy to see anything! Then it started raining. Check the weather carefully before you start this hike!

    Take this trail which connects with the John Rock loop trail for some spectacular views! Much less crowded than the Looking Glass Rock trail and still with beautiful scenery. Park at the Pisgah Wildlife Education center and pick up a trail map- very well marked and maintained.

    Very crowded trail if you go on a weekend day. Somewhat moderately strenuous uphill to a overlook. The views are nice but really are marred by the news tower at the same location. There are better hikes to go on in the area to be honest. Not a top pick to take visitors to.

    Anna Klein reviewed Appalachian Trail: Sam's Gap to Hog Back Ridge Shelter

    5 months ago

    Heads up: the map here actually shows the trail that goes from Sam’s knob to big bald. To hike to hogback Ridge shelter you actually go under I 26 and then up a big hill to the left following the white marked signs. I did not do it correctly and took the uphill portion toward big bald. I was not disappointed however as you come out along a long ridge with awesome views. The hike to get there was completely shaded on a well-maintained trail. Beautiful day!

    Super easy hike to awesome (small) waterfall and swimming hole. It is extremely busy on nice weekends so get there early to beat the crowds!

    Short easy hike to a spectacular waterfall! Wish I’d planned better and brought a picnic!

    Anna Klein reviewed Florence Nature Preserve Trail

    7 months ago

    Well maintained and seemingly well marked trail but I never did find the full loop of the blue trail! And, the red trail seemed to just mysteriously end at some large rocks...it was quite confusing. Otherwise decent walk in the woods, I had my two dogs and we only saw a couple other people. Probably wouldn’t go out of my way to do this again unless I was already headed down to chimney rock/lake lure.

    Great hike, very strenuous in spots. When you get to the top you’re at a pasture with great views (and also many cows!) would hike again.

    Easy hike to the waterfall. Never did find the upper falls because the trails are not well marked- there’s offshoots everywhere and very confusing! I wandered around with my dogs for a while and they liked the river but otherwise do not feel compelled to hike here again.

    Meh. Short hike to some decent views. You can climb the stairs to the top of the tower but it freaked me out so only went up two flights!

    Moderate route without much traffic. You come to a large pasture with some decent views at the top. Did not see any cows there. The way back was much harder! The pasture at the top of the bearwallow mountain hike is much better, however.

    Anna Klein reviewed Turkey Pen Gap Trail

    8 months ago

    The first 2.5 miles are extremely strenuous with nearly straight uphill portions then downhill. You can cut over on wagon gap trail then come down south mills river trail to make the second half of the hike very easy. Low traffic though we did run into a horse drawn wagon on the way back!

    Fantastic trail, well marked, moderate/strenuous. Incredible views. However, if the weather is nice and it’s a weekend day, it is heavily—HEAVILY—trafficked. Would recommend a weekday hike if possible. Lots of people and groups at the top talking loudly which put a damper on what should have been peace & solitude with beautiful scenery.
