Veterans, you’re invited to join us for a casual hiking event at Whiteside Mountain in Highlands North Carolina.
This excellent loop, designated a National Recreation Trail, climbs to the top of Whiteside Mountain, with its spectacular 700 ft high cliff walls lofting the hiker for amazing views.
If you would like to carpool please meet at the Old Walmart parking lot at 0800. We will begin hiking at 0900.
If you would like to drive yourself:
From the corner of Main Street and NC 106 in Highlands, follow US 64 East for 5.4 miles. Turn right onto Whiteside Mt. Rd. (SR 1600). There is a sign for Whiteside Mountain Recreation Area. Follow for 1 mile to the signed parking area on the left. There is a $2.00/day area use fee at Whiteside Mountain Recreation Area.
HERE is a link with more information about Whiteside Mountain.
We recommend you wear layers and a warm jacket, bring water, hat and good hiking shoes.
