Learn about Cherokee trails in Macon County

Written by 

A guided hike covering ancient Cherokee trails in Highlands will be held from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Thursday, June 23. Wild South Cultural Preservation Director Lamar Marshall will lead the hike.

The Highlands Biological Foundation, as part of their “Think About Thursdays” summer event series, will host the hike. Much of the road system in the Southeast is built directly on Cherokee trails and corridors, which means that, essentially, the Cherokee developed our road system. Marshall has been part of a recent initiative to find and restore the trail and road system of the Cherokee Nation in Western North Carolina.

The hike will leave from the Highlands Nature Center (parking is limited). Advanced registration is required. $10, including lunch.

828.526.2602.

    art theplaceI did it again. It’s 9 a.m. last Saturday at the starting line of the Cashiers Trail Mix five-mile backwoods race. I knew I should have gotten more sleep the night before, should have at least had something to eat that morning. Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
