The Land Trust for the Little Tennessee will host a nature study and leisurely hike to Yellow Creek Falls and nearby stretches of the creek in Robbinsville July 13.
Philip Moore, the Land Trust’s program director for Clay, Cherokee and Graham counties, will lead the hike. The forested tract includes healthy streams and upland communities, wetlands, and critical habitat for aquatic species. The upper section of Yellow Creek on the property is very slow moving and winding, unusual features for a mountain stream. The creek gets progressively steeper as it charts its downstream course toward the Cheoah River and culminates in Yellow Creek Falls.
Hikers will meet at the trailhead at 9 a.m. on U.S. 129 North in Graham County, about 2.3 miles north of Yellow Creek Road.
This event is free for LTLT members, but a donation of $35 is requested for non-members, and includes a complimentary membership to LTLT.
