'30 Hikes' brochure

The Asheville Chapter of FRIENDS of the Blue Ridge Parkway announced this week the publication of a revised, updated edition of its popular brochure, “30 Hikes.” The brochure describes 30 day-hikes along the Mountains-to-Sea Trail in the Asheville vicinity, each with parking and access from the Blue Ridge Parkway. The new edition was funded by a grant from REI Asheville.

The brochure rates the difficulty and describes the special features of each hike. The latest edition also includes a map and tips on having a safe and enjoyable hike.

The brochure is free and available at the Visitor Center near Parkway Headquarters, the Folk Art Center, and the Craggy Gardens Visitor Center, as well as at REI Asheville in Biltmore Park and Diamond Brand Outdoors in Arden.
