Hike to fall views
A hike to glimpse autumn color will depart 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 10, from the Jackson County Recreation Center in Cullowhee.
The location of the hike, planned to be no more than 5 miles and of moderate difficulty, will be determined the day of the outing so as to hit the area with most vibrant fall colors.

Parkway rangers will guide the 2.5-mile roundtrip hike, which will take in Second Falls and hike north on the Mountains-to-Sea Trail to listen for the roar of Yellowstone Falls far below.

Senior trips to view fall colors
A pair of trips for seniors wanting to take in the fall colors will be offered this month through the Waynesville Parks and Recreation Department.
On both days, the destination will be chosen the day of the trip to go where the foliage is brightest. The group will stop somewhere along the way to buy lunch out.
