Where you'll be

We'll be walking and wandering through a small grove of trees in the Shope Creek watershed area and continuing on to explore a portion of the creek itself. At the end of the walk we will sit in the grove and enjoy freshly brewed tea and a snack. Shope Creek is part of the Pisgah National Forest in the Appalachian Mountains.
