Saturday 1/2 Group Run

On Saturday Jan. 2nd, we will meet at the Buck Forest parking area of Dupont Forest @ 9am for the Trail 1/2 Marathon Course Preview. The run will be 6-7 miles (not the whole course. Greg Walker (Race Director) will be available to answer questions on the course. To get to Buck Forest...

Hooker Falls Parking Area (Closest access to Little River Waterfalls):
From Asheville, take I-240 west to I-26 east to the exit for Asheville Airport (exit 9). Head south (right) on NC 280 (4-lane highway) toward Brevard for 16 miles. Turn left on US 64 East and drive 3.7 miles. Turn right on Crab Creek Road. Drive 4.3 miles and turn right on Dupont Road. The road will climb and then begin a long downhill, at the bottom of which is the bridge over the Little River. The parking area is on the right just before the bridge. The trail to Triple and High Falls starts on the other side of the bridge.

Buck Forest Parking Area:
Continue past the Hooker Falls parking area (above) about 1 mile to the parking area on the left.

With the chance of inclement weather upon us we will make a final decision on Friday. But that is the plan for now!!

Looking forward to runnign the trails with you all
