Written by 

A hike along the Devil’s Britches Trail will be held at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, June 21, at Cataloochee Ranch in Maggie Valley. The Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy (SAHC) is holding the hike.

Judy Coker, ranch owner, and Claire Hobbs, SAHC Public Relations and Outreach Associate, will lead the hike. The hike is of moderate difficulty and covers about four miles, including vistas of the Plott Balsam Range, Hemphill Bald and Soco Gap. The trail will begin at the Ski Lodge Road and turn down the Bunchberry trail until it intersects with the Devil’s Britches road.

Lunch will be at Todd’s Folly rest area, and the return is downhill on Pine Tree Gap Road. Participants should bring water, a camera, warm jacket, sturdy shoes and lunch. Free for SAHC members, $10 for nonmembers. RSVP required.
