Last week I mentioned a couple of times that Kathy and I spent a few days hiking in the Smokies recently. As a result of that visit, we have just added several new hikes to the website. Almost all of which are on the North Carolina side of the Great Smoky Mountains. Here's what's new:
Mingus Creek Trail: There's still more exploring to do in this area after visiting the historic Mingus Mill.
* Chasteen Creek Cascades: Nice cascading waterfall - with lots of spring wildflowers along the way.
* Balsam High Top: There were fewer level spots on this hike than people. And we didn't see anyone else....
* Goldmine Loop: My first visit to the "Road to Nowhere!" Afterwards we rewarded ourselves with an excellent stout from the Nantahala Brewing Company.
We also updated a few hiker favorites with new photos and updated descriptions. These include Andrews Bald, Chimney Top Trail and the Oconaluftee River Trail.
Hopefully you'll find this information useful as you explore the many trails of the Great Smoky Mountains.
