Orientation: Valley History Explorer Hiking Series
February 27 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Join us for an orientation to the Museum’s VALLEY HISTORY EXPLORER HIKING SERIES, which consists of 8 hikes to historic locations around the Swannanoa Valley, one in each of our communities. The hour-long orientation will cover specifics of each hike. The orientation will take place at the Black Mountain Center for the Arts at 225 West State Street, Black Mountain, NC 28711.
This series was developed to introduce the significant history of the region to visitors and residents of the Swannanoa Valley through moderate, approximately 3-mile hikes to historic locations. More information…
Hikes generally occur on the 2nd Saturday of each month (March – October) at 9:00am and meet at the Museum. Each hiker will receive a punch card that serves as a log and validation of the completion of each hike. Finishers receive a Patagonia fleece with series logo.
