CMLC Hike to Bridal Veil Falls

Join the Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy next Saturday, January 26th, for a hike to the picturesque Bridal Veil Falls in DuPont State Recreational Forest. Bridal Veil Falls and DuPont were prominent filming locations in the blockbuster movie, The Hunger Games. The hike will also include three of DuPont’s scenic lakes: Lake Julia, Lake Dense, and little known Lake Alford.

Total hiking distance is 6 miles. This hike is rated as moderately difficult, with a total elevation gain of 800 feet. Attendance is free and open to the public, but reservations are required.

The latest CMLC newsletter also includes information on a new trail network in the Hickory Nut Gorge that the organization is working on, as well as the development of a plan to establish new greenways and river access points along the French Broad River which will connect to existing trails, greenways, and parks in Asheville, Fletcher, and Hendersonville.
