From mid-June through August 1, 2019, public hikes are being led by the Wilderness Ranger team of Montreat Conference Center, one of the eight entities that make up Montreat Landcare. Ranging from easy to difficult, and half-day and full-day, this year’s line-up of guided hikes has something for every level of interest and skill from beginner to expert. Typical outings include a leisurely walk along Big Piney Trail and an all-day 18-mile trip to Mt. Mitchell.
