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.

This Must Be the Place

    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.
