Two Asheville Greenways

2.1 miles; Asheville, NC Today was a lovely long walk to two very nice greenway trails in Asheville: Reed Creek Greenway and Glenn’s Creek Greenway. They basically meet at the North Carolina Botanical Gardens, which were, of course, closed. Also, a bonus stroll through a technically closed Weaver Park. As I’ve mentioned before, I walk […]

French Broad River Greenway West

3 miles; Asheville, NC Lovely day for a walk. Kept my social distance from like everyone. I actually have a system for these walks… I walk to them. So my total for this day was about 4-1/4 miles. But for the purposes of the blog, I’ve only included the actual greenway track. This hike starts […]

Pisgah NF Hard Times Loop

6.7 miles; Pisgah National Forest, NC I’ve been getting most of my local trail info from AllTrails, and this hike was no exception.

Pisgah NF Sleepy Gap Loop

3.4 miles; Arden, NC Not a long hike, but sure was a lot of “verticality.” Apple Health said it was the equivalent of 44 flights of stairs. Boy, howdy, I can completely believe that. As can my quads. I wanted to get back into the woods, but not into the WOODS, if you know what […]

Pisgah NF Mullinax Loop

5.2 miles; Pisgah National Forest, North Carolina So even though I’ve basically not been blogging, I haven’t actually stopped hiking, though you could be forgiven for thinking so. Yesterday I did a hike in the Pisgah National Forest. It was… how shall I say? An “adventure.” I noticed right away when researching this hike that […]
