Hike to Highland’s Rock Mountain

Written by 

out peakhikeA guided hike to the summit of Rock Mountain in the Highlands area will be held from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 13, led by Dr. Gary Wein, the Highlands-Cashiers Land Trust Executive Director and a botanist.

The summit of Rock Mountain is private property and is normally not open to the public, making this guided hike a rare chance to visit. The peak has been protected from development by the property owners, Will and Becky McKee, who placed the property in a conservation agreement with the Highlands-Cashiers land trust. The mountaintop is viewable from more than 100 peaks and its protection conserves the view for all.

Harper, with her million-dollar smile and swagger, immediately made me feel at home.
