I’d rather encounter just about any critter in the entire state than these guys. Give me venomous snakes all day long. How often have dozens of snakes simultaneously darted straight into my face just because I unwittingly came near their home? Exactly no times. This basketball-sized nest was conveniently located directly at human head height, directly on the Mountains to Sea trail at Shortoff last week. I was there twice; on Tuesday and Saturday. I noticed it Saturday, which means it either got built in a few days or I blundered past it twice Tuesday, including once in the dark 😳. #dolichovespula #dolichovespulamaculata #baldfacedhornet #ncwildlife #hornetsnest #ncnature #mountainstoseatrail #trailhazard #nikond3500 #nikkor70_300 #nikonnature #nikonnation #nikond3500photography #nchiking 3 minutes ago by @lando_the_magnificent

Day 15 May 27 Southern Appalachian 500 / Appalachian Trail Fontana Hilton to Mollies Ridge I crossed Fontana Dam in the morning, as the trail goes right over the dam. I stopped in the visitor center bathrooms to refill my water bottles. Surprisingly nice showers but I decided to embrace the stink. My knee hurt a bit from the steep downhill the day before so I took it easy. Well as easy as you can take it when climbing 4,000’ in the Smokies. Eventually took the side trail to Shuckstack lookout tower - good choice. Bit sketchy going up the tower but the views - wow. Worth it. One of my favs. Lucked out with an overcast day and some wind to keep me cool during the climb. Made it to Mollies Ridge and called it a day. One thru hiker at the shelter I called Shackleton told me how he started the trail carrying 30 days of food. Another thru hiker came running.. err sprinting back up the side trail from the water source having seen a BEAR, with it even standing up to look at her. I’m not sure running was the smartest thing but she did look faster than me so maybe that was her plan. Fittingly her trail name was “hare”. #SouthernAppalachian500 #MountainsToSeaTrail #FoothillsTrail #BartramTrail #ChattoogaRiver #AppalachianTrail #BlackMountainCrestTrail #GrandfatherMountain #WilsonCreek #LinvilleGorge 2 days ago by @hereispaul
Day 15 May 27 Southern Appalachian 500 / Appalachian Trail Fontana Hilton to Mollies Ridge I crossed Fontana Dam in the morning, as the trail goes right over the dam. I stopped in the visitor center bathrooms to refill my water bottles. Surprisingly nice showers but I decided to embrace the stink. My knee hurt a bit from the steep downhill the day before so I took it easy. Well as easy as you can take it when climbing 4,000’ in the Smokies. Eventually took the side trail to Shuckstack lookout tower - good choice. Bit sketchy going up the tower but the views - wow. Worth it. One of my favs. Lucked out with an overcast day and some wind to keep me cool during the climb. Made it to Mollies Ridge and called it a day. One thru hiker at the shelter I called Shackleton told me how he started the trail carrying 30 days of food. Another thru hiker came running.. err sprinting back up the side trail from the water source having seen a BEAR, with it even standing up to look at her. I’m not sure running was the smartest thing but she did look faster than me so maybe that was her plan.

This lil well beaten path I'm standing on starts in the Great Smokey Mountains at Clingman's Dome "which also connects the Appalachian trail" an goes all the way to the outer banks of North Carolina coast line. It's the "MTS / Mountains to Sea trail" roughly a 1000 miles of everything you could ask for in a long trail! "Purdy damn cool if you ask me!" 😁 The part of the picture you cant see is I'm at 4980 feet elevation an the path follows the top of Pisgah Ridge with views for MILES. 😍🌎 . . . . . . #sonyalpha #mountainstoseatrail #ashevillenc #asheville #blueridgeparkway #thruhike #greatsmokeymountains #pisgahnationalforest #pisgahridge #pisgahinn #mountaintop #blueridgehiking #anydayontrailisagoodday #getoutanhike 2 days ago by @bizarros_world

About 9 miles today on the MST between Doughton Lodge and Basin Cove Overlook (in & out). There were a lot of flowers blooming and beautiful views. Butterflies and honeybees were abundant.

Day 14 May 26 Southern Appalachian 500 / Appalachian Trail Cable Gap Shelter to Fontana Dam / Village Enjoyed talking to two SOBO’s last night at the shelter - Treeman and Bobsled. Maybe it’s best not to talk to thru hikers to avoid the FOMO? I saw 3 headlamps on trail around 5:30 am and found out they belonged to the thru hikers I stayed with the day before. They had gotten an early 4 am start to get to Fontana Village. The promise of a breakfast buffet will do that to you. Heck even I was on trail at 6. That’s am not pm. Since I’m on a route and not adhering to a certain trail, I decided to take an alternate trail to Fontana Village that the SOBOs saw the day before. At Walker Gap, a Yellow Creek Mountain trail stays along the ridgeline and connects to the Bartram trail, which drops right into Fontana Village, saving me from shuttling to the lodge. The downside was the connector trail was overgrown and steep downhill. I eventually made it and enjoyed the buffet. Then 3 hours later lunch :). I picked up a resupply box at the lodge and then spent the night at the Fontana “Hilton”, which is just a fancy shelter. I found a couple trees up from the shelter. I did some laundry using water from the water pump, a trash compactor bag and soap. Eventually others came to the shelter but I was so tired I stayed in the hammock and went to bed early. Nice rest day with only 6.5 miles done. #SouthernAppalachian500 #MountainsToSeaTrail #FoothillsTrail #BartramTrail #ChattoogaRiver #AppalachianTrail #BlackMountainCrestTrail #GrandfatherMountain #WilsonCreek #LinvilleGorge 3 days ago by @hereispaul

Nice rest day with only 6.5 miles done. #SouthernAppalachian500 #MountainsToSeaTrail #FoothillsTrail #BartramTrail #ChattoogaRiver #AppalachianTrail #BlackMountainCrestTrail #GrandfatherMountain #WilsonCreek #LinvilleGorge 3 days ago by @hereispaul

I asked my husband which mountains he prefers - Rockies or Smokies. He said it’s like asking him which of our kids he prefers... Spectacular scenery to be found in both! #blueridgeparkway #greatsmokymountains #hiking #mountainstoseatrail 4 days ago by @janrbrick

Little 2 mile night hike on the mountains to sea trail. Monarda 'Snow White' bees balm. Monarda didyma is an aromatic herb in the family Lamiaceae, native to eastern North America from Maine west to Ontario and Minnesota, and south to northern Georgia. Its odor is considered similar to that of the bergamot orange. #mountainstoseatrail #nighthiking #fragrant #flowers #bloom #beesbalm #alongtheway #blueRidgeparkway #trailhiking #nighthiking 5 days ago by @georgiawebgurl

Day 2 on the #mountainstoseatrail ... upside: great hiking with incredible vistas. Downside: 4 hours of rain and disagreements with the guidebook about their definition of “moderate” inclines. @hike_the_east #hikenc 5 days ago by @clc521

Our @mountaintoseatrail hikers recognize these seemingly endless rising ridge-lines of the Middle Prong Wilderness along MST Section 2. But did you know the MST is (always) growing? Tonight on the blog, @getgoingnc and FMST Executive Director Kate Dixon talk about exactly where the MST’s growth spurts have occurred in the past year. Link in Profile! 5 days ago by @trustygopc
So... I have no idea what this is. Maybe you guys can help me figure it out. I spotted this glow out on the horizon last night from Shortoff. I wish I had had the presence of mind to turn on my peak finder app, but I didn’t. This was off to the right of Lake James from my viewpoint, which puts it in the general Marion/Old Fort ish direction, but I really have no idea how far away it was. This is a 300mm zoom shot, so it was pretty far away. I took advantage of higher ISO and longer exposures to see more detail, so swipe all the way over to the last shot for a general idea of what it looked like to the naked eye. It was definitely the color of fire illuminating low haze, which I’ve seen in person before, but I’ve never seen it on such a large scale or from so far away. There was no discernible flicker, but if it was a large fire I doubt there would be a flicker anyway. Is it some big factory with thousands of sodium lights or something? Whatever it was/is, it was the only source of light that color and concentration on the horizon. I googled to see if there were any active fires, but I couldn’t find anything. At any rate, it was incredibly pretty to photograph. #hikenc #shortoffmountain #linvillegorge #linvillegorgewilderness #mountainstoseatrail #nightlandscapes #nightlandscape #nchiking #nikond3500 #nikonnation #nikond3500photography #nikkor70_300 5 days ago by @lando_the_magnificent

Day 13 May 25 Southern Appalachian 500 / Appalachian Trail I planned a long day to setup a short hike into Fontana Village the next day, so I got around and left before the others. One aspect I look for in my gear is simplicity so I can setup and take down when needed. That helps offset me sleeping in :) The climb up Cheoah Bald was a long consistent uphill, so I was happy when I reached the top. More views and another sunny day. Water strategy became important. There wasn’t a lack of water but some water sources weren’t real close to the trail. Who wants to walk an extra mile when you don’t have to. I took a break at Stecoah Gap then found myself climbing and climbing. About midway up I recalled Jacobs Ladder is in the area and sure enough I had found it. Thankfully it wasn’t too long but I was glad to be done with it. Finally, I thought I was getting close to Cable Gap shelter but realized I had read the mileage for Cody Gap on a sign. Ugh. I made it eventually. Nice spot to hammock with a creek nearby. Just under 20 miles on the day and 50 the last three days. Doing better than I expected. #SouthernAppalachian500 #MountainsToSeaTrail #FoothillsTrail #BartramTrail #ChattoogaRiver #AppalachianTrail #BlackMountainCrestTrail #GrandfatherMountain #WilsonCreek #LinvilleGorge 5 days ago by @hereispaul

I staked out my spot and waited for the moonrise. A perfect scenario would have been a clear horizon so that I could get a shot of the dim moon against the mountains with landscape features visible in the shot. I was hopeful because last time I viewed the moonrise from here, it looked similarly hazy in the distance, but the moon cut through really clearly. No such luck this time, though. By the time it got above the cloud cover, it was high and bright and therefore apt to wash out against the dark horizon. Not crazy about any of these pictures, but it was still a nice sight in person. 🤷‍♂️ #shortoffmountain #mountainstoseatrail #linvillegorge #linvillegorgeous #gayoutdoors #outsidewithpride #linvillegorgewilderness #hikenc #hikingaddict #hikertrash #nc100miles #nikond3500 #nikond3500photography #ncoutdoors #nchiking #myblueridge #fullbuckmoon #lunarphotography #fullmoonrising #moonrise 5 days ago by @lando_the_magnificent

Went up Shortoff on the MST yesterday evening to just past the Pond with the intention of observing/photographing the full Buck Moon rising over the Catawba Valley on my way back down. Low cloud cover kind of sabotaged that, but I did get some shots of other cool stuff, and I got a good spot of cardio in by pushing myself to make <20 min. miles up the hill in the 90° heat and humidity. Hence the sweat. #shortoffmountain #mountainstoseatrail #linvillegorge #linvillegorgeous #gaybear #gayhiker #scruffygay #beardedcub #instabear #gayoutdoors #outsidewithpride #linvillegorgewilderness #hikenc #hikingaddict #hikertrash #nc100miles #nikond3500 #nikond3500photography #ncoutdoors #nchiking #myblueridge #tablerocknc 5 days ago by @lando_the_magnificent

Low cloud cover kind of sabotaged that, but I did get some shots of other cool stuff, and I got a good spot of cardio in by pushing myself to make <20 min. miles up the hill in the 90° heat and humidity. Hence the sweat. #shortoffmountain #mountainstoseatrail #linvillegorge #linvillegorgeous #gaybear #gayhiker #scruffygay #beardedcub #instabear #gayoutdoors #outsidewithpride #linvillegorgewilderness #hikenc #hikingaddict #hikertrash #nc100miles #nikond3500 #nikond3500photography #ncoutdoors #nchiking #myblueridge #tablerocknc 5 days ago by @lando_the_magnificent

Day 12 May 24 Southern Appalachian 500 / Appalachian Trail Up at 7am. Maybe I’ll turn into a morning person yet. Haha JK. First up - I got to the Wesser Bald lookout tower. It’s different than a lot of other towers in that it’s like a 20’x20’ platform on top. Great 360 degree views. I laid and watched the clouds float by as the sweat dried from my shirt as it hung on the railing. Then it was a loooong downhill to the Natahala Outdoor Center (NOC), where I stopped for a burger, fries, Coke and later beer by the river. I found the coveted seat next to the electric outlet. Fun watching the kayaks and recalling our time in duckies on the river. Put my legs in the water and it was as cold as I remembered. Chafing sucks. I realized at the NOC I had gone from from 0/10 to 9/10 chafing problems. Applied some body glide but it was too late so I cowboy walked up the trail until I hit the first camp with water a few miles after the railroad tracks. The fun part was 5 other thru hikers joined (the camp, not the cowboy walk) so I got to enjoy the trail conversation. Oh and one hiker shared a beer. Score. #SouthernAppalachian500 #MountainsToSeaTrail #FoothillsTrail #BartramTrail #ChattoogaRiver #AppalachianTrail #BlackMountainCrestTrail #GrandfatherMountain #WilsonCreek #LinvilleGorge 6 days ago by @hereispaul

It was a beautiful morning on Segment 6 of the Mountains to Sea Trail. What’s your favorite place to hike in the Elkin Valley? #elkinvalleytrails #evta #ncmst #mountainstoseatrail #exploreelkin 📷 @kna_outdoors 6 days ago by @elkinvalleytrails

Day 11 May 23 Southern Appalachian 500 / Appalachian Trail At Franklin NC, I could pick between continuing on the Bartram Trail or jumping up to the AT. I decided to hit the AT - the section from Winding Stair Gap to the NOC (and beyond) has been on my list for some time due to all the balds. I’m a sucker for views. To get to the trailhead, Bobby the Greek shuttled me from Oconaluftee Visitor Center (GSMNP) near Cherokee, NC to Winding Stair Gap ($60). After having a few days off trail, I felt rested and the mileage came easy. It didn’t seem long and I was at Wayah Bald. I didn’t know it was a place you could drive up to. You can see burned trees nearby from a fire in 2016 that also damaged the tower, which has since been repaired. The views were great and I could see Rabun Bald where I had been previously. I continued on and camped .1 mile past Cold Spring Gap Shelter, at a place on the ridge with views down the valley. I could hear some folks at the shelter but didn’t meet them until later (3 girls thru hiking). #SouthernAppalachian500 #MountainsToSeaTrail #FoothillsTrail #BartramTrail #ChattoogaRiver #AppalachianTrail #BlackMountainCrestTrail #GrandfatherMountain #WilsonCreek #LinvilleGorge 1 week ago by @hereispaul

Good day for a little trail building & maintenance. This could be anyone.... next trail fun day planned for next Saturday! Save the date- details to be posted by Monday. Next Saturday.... in Elkin.... probably start by 7:45am, and end earlier now that the summer heat & humidity has arrived. #exploreelkin #mountainstoseatrail #ElkinNC #elkinvalleytrails #yadkinvalleync #fitness #workout #fun 1 week ago by @elkinvalleytrails

Thomas "The Professor" at the newest portion of the #MountainstoSeaTrail 1 week ago by @warriorexpeditions
I had the privilege of hiking with this girl the day before my birthday earlier this week. Tonight we continue the celebration with a family dinner out. Another year older, and life keeps getting better. Check out the vlog of this hike of the Boone Fork Trail on my YouTube channel (link in my profile). #mountainstoseatrail #ncmst #booneforktrail #couplesthathike #828isgreat #exploreboone #visitnc #nc100miles 1 week ago by @keefr_hikes

We love running into hikers on the Clayton River Walk on the Neuse section of the @mountainstoseatrail Check out this pic we snagged of the duo, Lexi and Aaron, on Day 52 of their 1200 mile trek across our state! The couple started their hike at Clingmans Dome in North Carolina's Great Smoky Mountains National Park and they plan to end in the Outer Banks, North Carolina at our coast! WOW! “We are really grateful to have the opportunity to experience this adventure! It has been super challenging and also very rewarding. We have especially loved walking through small towns! The community garden in Clayton is lovely. We stopped in Downtown Clayton, NC for lunch and played a few holes of mini golf at Main St. Community Garden. We also loved the greenway that starts in the Clayton area, it’s beautiful.” – Lexi Continue to track their journey by checking out @lexiely Our 4-mile section of the Mountains to Sea Trail starts at the Wake/Johnston counties border, takes you past the massive Riverwood Athletic Club, Clayton, over the Neuse River on our scenic pedestrian bridge and then connects you up to the Sam's Branch Greenway. Sam's Branch is part of the East Coast Greenway Alliance that connects towns like Clayton from Maine to Florida! And great news...later this summer, the Town of Clayton begins construction to extend Sam's Branch, including a tunnel under N. O'Neil Street and a trail that will soon take you up to Legend & Municipal parks and lead you safely into @downtownclaytonnc . We're sorry that wasn't finished for Lexi & Aaron's trek to Main Street! Plus, more good news - earlier this year, Johnston County leaders signed an agreement with the state to begin the easement acquisition that will map the way for Clayton's greenway system to connect to Smithfield's - closing yet another gap in this incredible trail system from our mountains to our coast!

And great news...later this summer, the Town of Clayton begins construction to extend Sam's Branch, including a tunnel under N. O'Neil Street and a trail that will soon take you up to Legend & Municipal parks and lead you safely into Downtown Clayton! We're sorry that wasn't finished for Lexi & Aaron's trek to Main Street! Plus, more good news - earlier this year, Johnston County leaders signed an agreement with the state to begin the easement acquisition that will map the way for Clayton's greenway system to connect to Smithfield's - closing yet another gap in this incredible trail system from our mountains to our coast!

“Trish Brown moved to Asheville in 1993 and has been a passionate trail runner ever since. If anything inspired Trish to write this book, it was bumping into folks who didn’t know where to hike or run in Asheville, or who were afraid of venturing off into Bent Creek for fear of getting lost in its maze of trails. She brought her research skills and her extensive experience on Asheville’s trails to the challenge of producing an accurate and useful guide to the area. She hopes this resource will inspire readers to park their cars and explore the natural majesty that is waiting just beyond that trail entrance sign.” We sell a lot of these guidebooks to Bent Creek, MST, and the NC Arboretum, made specifically for trail runners, hikers, and walkers.

Hiked Segment 1 from Campsite No. 52 (mp. 20.2) to Thomas Divide Overlook (mp. 33.5) on 2019-07-10, 13.3 miles. When I took my shoes off at the Overlook to change socks, I had some decent damage to a couple of toes and both Achilles. Decided to stop, as I’m headed to the beach and didn’t want to risk not walkin’ then. Was bummed for a minute. Thanks to Baked for the ride and the advice. Shoutout again to Will for the good times and to T-Roy and Vandrea for the gear. Thanks to all with advice for this Segment. Crossed 500 miles of the MST on this part of the hike, I’m having a blast. 737, I can’t wait to come back. 510 miles total. #mountainstoseatrail #ncmst #737jam #sunrisepatrol #discovernc #ncisbeautiful #ncoutdoors #thisisnc #onlyinnorthcarolina #onlyinnc #inbetweenmynightsofdreamsillfindsomewheretospendtheday #ncphotos #anotherroadsideattraction #deadheads #nchikes #everywhereigothepeopleallknow #walkontoanothercitytonight #theriverisimmortal #goingtowater #blueridgeparkway #washyalonelyfeetintheriverinthemorning #whateveryadotakecareofyourshoes #steppinoffsharplyfromtherankandfile #icaneatmorechickenthanonegalcanfry #soiemptyoutallofmypocketsandthroweverythingaway #blistersinthesun #inthebigrockcandymountainyaneverchangeyoursocks #stealyourfacerightoffyourhead #theriverkeepatalkinbutyaneverhearaworditsayin #runhideseekinyourownbackyard 1 week ago by @coffee_beans_737

Day 10 May 19 Southern Appalachian 500 / Bartram trail The day started off nice and cool as it was overcast. There was a chance of rain so it motivated me to pack up while my gear was still dry and get on the trail at a decent time. I was meeting my wife around 1 pm in Franklin and had 8 miles on the Bartram trail - mostly all downhill - before arriving at a road. Here you can walk the road or find another way into Franklin. I decided to hitchhike. One thing you don’t expect to see on a trail is an abandoned yellow school bus. As I came up on the bus, I wondered how in the world it got there. The trail didn’t seem like an old roadbed or rail grade like sometimes. I still haven’t figured it out. It did remind me of the story Into the Wild about Chris McCandless in Alaska. I planned to be offtrail for a bit as my daughter was home from college and I wanted to spend time with the family. All told, I had hiked 130 miles over the past 10 days on the Foothills trail, Chattooga River trail and the Bartram trail. Next up - I had originally planned to hike the Bartram up to Wayah Bald on the AT but heard from a number of folks that it was a tough and dry ridge hike, gaining 5000’ cumulatively. Not sure if that is exactly true, but it helped push me to start the next section on the Appalachian trail at Winding Stair Gap. #SouthernAppalachian500 #MountainsToSeaTrail #FoothillsTrail #BartramTrail #ChattoogaRiver #AppalachianTrail #BlackMountainCrestTrail #GrandfatherMountain #WilsonCreek #LinvilleGorge 1 week ago by @hereispaul

some days, I wish I could wake up on the top of these mountains, close to the sky with the wind all around, and just sip yes & admire the view and explore the trails all day. Blue Ridge mountains are definitely my go-to happy place ☀️ So here’s a photo from our last visit up the parkway, a mountains tumbler nestled in the rocks. Where’s your happy place? ——————————————————— #blueridge #blueridgemountains #blueridgeparkway @blueridgemoments #mountains #mountainstoseatrail #mountaingirl #wnc #wncmountains #northcarolina #carolinabeauty #pottery #adventure #explore #ceramics #livewild #lifeoutside #getoutdoors #mountainworld #mountainscapes #craggygardens #asheville #avl #mountainpottery #nature 1 week ago by @tworidgespottery
