Valley History Explorer Hike #8: North Fork

October 9 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

This event will be structured as a stop-and-go tour of the North Fork area. Attendees will visit several prominent historic sites and enjoy talks from local historians and descendants of North Fork families. Speakers will explore the development of the North Fork community,  homesteads and prominent people, and influential historic institutions including Moore General Hospital, Black Mountain College, and the Asheville Watershed.
Note: This event was originally scheduled as a tour of the Grove Stone quarry, but due to a scheduling conflict, the tour has been restructured.  

Updated Coronavirus Protocol:

Due to the very high percentage of fully vaccinated people on our hikes and the relaxed COVID guidelines, we will be returning to our customary hike route and transportation plans. We will now be doing one-way hikes that will require a short carpool/driver shuttle system. People in the shuttle cars should mask up and leave some windows open. **If you are uncomfortable with these arrangements, please let the hike committee know at svmhikes@gmail.com and your credits will be reserved for future hikes.** 

We will observe the following hiking procedures due to COVID:

    • Please bring a mask to the event to use during carpooling.
    • No one who is sick or running a fever should attend
    • If not vaccinated, masks should be worn in all group settings like sign-in and congregation
      times.
    • Social distancing while on the trails is recommended.
