April 21st: Jones Gap to Whiterock Mountain

April 21 @ 10:30 am - 3:00 pm

View of Whiterock on the Bartram Trail between Jones Gap and Hickory Knoll Road

Spring wildflowers, a wildlife meadow, and views are highlights of this moderate forest hike of 4.6 miles round trip. A steep but short spur trail up Whiterock Mountain offers some especially stunning views of Tessentee Valley and the Nantahala mountains.

The overall elevation gain is modest with a few steep, rocky sections both on the way to Whiterock Mountain and back to Jones Gap.

Since this is a popular hiking spot, we’ll limit the number of people to 10. Karen Wallace and Jill Osborne will be leading this one!

We’re meeting at Macon Plaza (Food Lion), 155 Macon Plaza Dr., Franklin, NC 28734 at 10:30am. We’ll carpool from there to the trailhead which includes a few miles on gravel roads.
