This summer Wild South is ramping up our  Campaign  to protect 25,500 acres of some of the most spectacular scenery in Western North Carolina.  Stretching from Grandfather Mountain along the Blue Ridge Parkway to Highway 321 sits the proposed Grandfather National Scenic Area (GNSA).

Wild South has been working to protect this area with members of the community to ensure that this treasure remains unmarred by industrial logging and road building.  Because we understand that people are more likely to value and protect a place if they enjoy it we are hosting hikes this summer.

Our first hike is scheduled for  July 13th  and will be a short trek to the heart of the GNSA. The hike will take us along Thunderhole creek and we will visit the creek’s namesake, a rushing falls that spills deep into the bedrock with a steady roar.

We would love to have you join us.  To sign up for this and future hikes join our Meetup Group  today.  Also be sure to “Like” our new  Facebook Page   for all the latest news and updates.
