Spring Hiking Series: Twin Falls – Pisgah National Forest

May 1 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm

WherePisgah Ranger District of Pisgah National Forest

Meet: Columbus, Food Lion parking area, east side, @ 8:30

6.6-miles, moderate, trail type – loop

Hikers will begin the journey traveling along Avery Creek before reaching Twin Falls, two 100-foot waterfalls that are not parallel, or even very close together, but can be viewed at the same time. The first waterfall is higher and has more water than the second, but both are beautiful in their own right. After viewing the falls, the group will follow a trail along Henry Branch before returning to the starting point. Participants will have a great opportunity to view spring wildflowers and hear early spring migratory birds returning to their breeding grounds after spending the winter in their tropical homelands.

Contact Pam@conservingcarolina.org with additional questions.

Conserving Carolina is sponsoring a Friday hiking series this fall, free, guided, and open to the public. The hikes will meet at various locations (noted for each date) and will leave promptly at 8:45 a.m. Hikers should plan to return to the area in the late afternoon, time varying with group size, distance of hike, and drive time. Car-pooling will be organized at the meeting locations. If you’re coming from an area closer to the trailhead, please contact Pam Torlina (email above and number below) to make other meeting arrangements.

Be sure to wear appropriate clothing and sturdy footwear. Bring a bag lunch and/or snack and plenty of water for yourself. In case of inclement weather, call the Conserving Carolina office, ext. 300, before 8:15 a.m. on the date of the hike, and/or check our Facebook page and calendar. Please also remember to bring any medication that you may need in the event of an emergency (ie: epinephrine, nitroglycerine, insulin, etc.). Hike leaders will carry a first aid kit; however, it may not contain specific medication for your individual needs.

Before each hike, you will be asked to sign a waiver form. For your safety, do not attempt any hike beyond your ability and experience. This schedule is subject to change.
