Black Balsam Knob in the Pisgah National Forest is one of seven spots nationwide that Sierra Designs ambassadors have chosen to celebrate National Trails Day. On Saturday, June 19, ambassadors will be at Black Balsam to host a trailside happy hour and hand out Sierra Designs swag as part of the Toasts on Trail program, designed to encourage people to get out and hike. Black Balsam is the only East Coast location among the seven, which also include sites in Alaska, Colorado, Washington and Minnesota.
