Rim Hike #2: Rhododendron Rim

January 26, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 1:30 pm

$30 – $50

This 4.3 mile, moderate hike​ runs from Wendell Begley’s home on Sunset Mountain to Route 9. It passes through property once owned by Spanish architect Rafael Guastavino, best known for his innovative system of self-supporting arches and vaults using interlocking tiles in some of New York’s most famous Beaux-Arts landmarks, as well as Asheville’s Basilica of St. Lawrence. He retired in Black Mountain and built an eclectic estate called Rhododendron and known locally as the “Spanish Castle”.

Difficulty: Moderate, 4.3 miles

Note: Rim Hike #1 – Weatherford Heights takes place in March and is strenuous. Rim Hikes #2 and #3, which are more moderate, will take place in January and February, respectively.
