Valley History Explorer Series Hike #6: Riceville (Shope Creek)

August 10 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Riceville is named after Joseph Marion Rice, who settled in the valley in the 1780s. We’ll carpool to the trailhead and along the way view several points of historic interest.  This hike will explore the 1700-acre tract of Pisgah National Forest land just below the Blue Ridge Parkway at the end of Shope Creek Road including the small, but beautiful, Casita Falls. 

Difficulty: Moderate, 2 miles

Cost: $25 members, $35 nonmembers

Note: This hike is part of a series, which is at capacity. Hikers who wish to register for individual hikes may add their name to the waitlist by sending an email to info@swannanoavalleymuseum.org.
