Guided Sunset Hike

Join us for an evening hike featuring one of the most beautiful aspects of our area - our sunset! This hike is strenuous - very rocky in some places - and is around 1.5 miles total. We will start hiking while it is still daylight, and hopefully catch a sunset at a western-facing peak close to town. While there, we'll have a light snack. After sunset, we'll hike back down to the car and travel back to Asheville. The hike will likely finish in the dark, so each participant will be given a headlamp to use during the trip.
