Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy invites you to join us for a Weekday Wildflower Walk at Sherwood Forest, a private residential community in Transylvania County on Thursday, April 23rd. This hike is open to members and non-members.
The wildflower walk will be about two and a half hours long through a rich cove forest, stopping along the way to view and discuss flowers. We will be led by Margaret Napier, a wildflower expert. For those who want to bring a lunch with them, we can eat at picnic tables near Robin Hood Barn; rest rooms are available at nearby Robin Hood Center if there is not an event going on at that time.
Total cumulative walking distance is 2.0 miles. This walk is rated as easy in difficulty, featuring a total elevation gain of 500 feet. This hike can only accomidate 20 people total, per the wildflower leader's request.
Participants are required to be in reasonable physical condition and capable of completing a two mile hike over uneven, forested terrain. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate pets on this hike. Hikers should wear sturdy walking shoes (no flip-flops), bring several layers of clothing in preparation for changing warm and cold temperatures, pack plenty of water as well as a snack/lunch to eat during the hike. Hikers who attend are required to participate in the entire duration of the hike. Hikers must be age 12 and up.

Hike meeting locations, times, and additional details will be sent through email upon confirmation of your spot on the hike. This hike can accomodate 20 hikers.
