Join us for a Winter Tree ID workshop on Saturday, February 1st. This workshop is aimed at beginners, so we'll start by covering basic vocabulary used in tree ID and various ID techniques with a workshop from Carrie Blair of Carrie's Tree School. Assuming good weather, we will move outside for the second half lead by MountainTrue's Public Lands Biologist, Josh Kelly, where we'll put what we've learned to the test. No materials are necessary, but please bring water, snacks, close-toed shoes and weather appropriate clothing.

Signs of Spring Hike

March 21 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Green River Cove Trail, 3770 Green River Cove Road
Saluda, 28773 United States
+ Google Map
$5 – $15

Celebrate the arrival of spring with this moderate 6.8 mile out-and-back hike into the Green River Gorge. Guided by expert ecologist and MountainTrue Public Lands Director Bob Gale, we will search out the season's first ephemeral wildflowers such as trillium, bloodroot, and toothwort. Because the Game Lands lie at a lower elevation, they have milder temperatures, giving us the chance to be among the first to see early spring vegetation and wildflowers. Our path will follow the Green River and offer continuous views of its quiet stretches and splendid rapids, finishing at a rock outcrop and enjoy a view of kayakers as they tackle the legendary rapids of the Narrows below.

Fall Scenic Hike

October 17 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm
Pilot Cove Loop Trail
$5 – $15

Join MountainTrue's Ecologist and Public Lands Director, Bob Gale, for a gorgeous and educational hike through Pisgah National Forest. This hike offers breathtaking views of the fall foliage, and if we are lucky, we will catch glimpses of the Monarch Butterfly migration. We will be hiking the Pilot Cove Loop Trail in Pisgah, which is approximately 4 miles long. The trail starts in a lesser known part of Pisgah National Forest and winds upward among the brightly colored sourwood and black gum trees. After opening up onto a beautiful rocky outcrop, the trails travels through recently logged forested as well as much older sections of forest. There are some steep inclines on this trail, but Bob will be making frequent stops to rest and interpret the flora and fauna.
