Fall Scenic Hike

October 9 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Join MountainTrue's Ecologist and Public Lands Director, Bob Gale, for a gorgeous and educational hike through Pisgah National Forest. This moderate 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.

Buncombe County has adopted the ambitious goals of reaching 100% renewable energy for internal operations by 2030 and for the community at large by 2042. As the first major step in reaching these goals, the County partnered with other local agencies to install solar panels on public buildings all over the County including schools, libraries, fire stations, community centers, and more. This bus tour will move around town visiting a few different sites where solar installations are already in place. At each stop, we will learn about that particular installation, the partners involved in making it happen, and how supporters of MountainTrue and other advocacy groups helped push these projects across the finish line. You can expect to leave inspired by both the infrastructure progress in our county and also by ways you and other residents can continue to play a pivotal role in helping Buncombe County meet its renewable energy goals!
