The Land Trust for the Little Tennessee will host a guided hike to Yellow Creek Falls in Graham County on Friday, Oct. 5.
The LTLT purchased the 905-acre Yellow Creek property in 2008 to conserve it. The forested tract includes healthy streams and upland communities, wetlands, and critical habitat for aquatic species. The upper section of Yellow Creek is very slow moving and winding and has unusual features for a mountain stream. The hike will leave from the Yellow Creek Falls trailhead at 10 a.m., which is off N.C. 129 past Robbinsville. The event is free, but registration is required. www.ltlt.org or 828.524.2711.
