ABOUT THE SERIES: Now in its 12th year, the Swannanoa Valley Museum’s exclusive Rim Hike series offers 11 hikes that generally take place the 3rd Saturday of the month. Each hike covers a portion of the approximately 31 miles of the Swannanoa Rim, which runs from Jesse’s High Top, across Lakey Gap, over Ridgecrest and Montreat, up to the Blue Ridge Parkway, and down to Cedar Cliff above Camp Rockmont. The hikes are led by experienced hike leaders who are also extremely knowledgeable about the history, topography, and ownership of the land. The series is recommended for experienced hikers as several hikes are strenuous. More information…
Finishers receive a Patagonia jacket with Rim Hike logo.
NOTE ON INDIVIDUAL HIKE REGISTRATION: Hikers who started the series in prior years and need to make up individual hike(s) will be emailed by the museum’s Hike Committee in 2021 to register for the hikes needed to complete the series.
