Johnson Branch Member’s Hike
May 11, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 3:00 pm
Join Trails Specialist Peter Barr and Community Engagement Manager Ericka Berg on a hike at Johnson Branch conservation easement!
Located in Transylvania County on the slopes of Becky Mountain, Johnson Branch was protected forever in 2009 by the Jones family. A privately owned property, the slopes of the 61-acre easement are a sight to see. They are home to a half-mile of the Johnson Branch tributary of the French Broad, multiple seepage bogs, a dozen waterfalls, and significant natural heritage communities.
Bursting with wildflowers and waterfalls, this hike is on land not open to the public. This is a rare opportunity to see a beautiful piece of land, conserved forever and photograph its brilliant waterfalls.
Come see this beautiful, private property that YOU helped conserve!
