Kids hike the Appalachian Trail as part of school work

Earlier this month the fourth-grade classes from Cartoogechaye Elementary School hiked 4 miles on the Appalachian Trail from Wayah Crest picnic area to Siler Bald. The Nantahala Hiking Club led the hike as part of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy’s Trail to Every Classroom outreach program to local schools. The school’s physical education department uses the hike to demonstrate hiking as a life long, healthy living activity.
