Join REI as we explore Black Balsam, hiking almost entirely above tree line. Black Balsam Knob and the surrounding mountains rise 6,000 feet above Pisgah National Forest. Unlike the rest of the forest, many peaks in this area are grassy, treeless balds, providing spectacular, lofty views in every direction. Our professional guides will lead the way as we discover the natural wonders of this unique landscape. We'll hike approximately 5 miles on easy/moderate terrain. Hikers of all experience levels are welcome! Participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a participating parent or responsible adult.
