Hikes will be geared for those with little or no hiking experience. Hikes will gradually increase in difficulty from almost level to about 500' elevation gain, and each will be about 3 miles. Participants will hike at Warren Wilson College, the NC Arboretum and two hikes along the Mountains-to-Sea Trail. Hiking tips will be provided. Spring wildflowers will be a focus. Prerequisite: Participants must be able to walk three miles on uneven terrain before classes begin.
