Led by Montreat Conference Center’s ranger team, a series of hikes in and around the Montreat cove begins June 13 and continues through August 3, 2017. The usual schedule is for hikes to be on Tuesday and Thursdays, with both half-day and full-day outings. Destinations include Sanctuary Loop (easy), Greybeard Mountain (moderate) and Mt. Mitchell (long!). For more information about outdoors programs of the conference center, see http://www.montreat.org/play/activities/hiking/.
