Explore beautiful trails in Western North Carolina and don't forget your four-legged best friend at home! I am a Naturalist at a local area attraction and am hiking every chance I get. I've been exploring this area for the last two years and would love you show you some of the beautiful places I've been lucky enough to enjoy. I am based out of the Hendersonville, NC area (just south of Asheville) and am familiar with DuPont State Recreational Forest as well as Pisgah National Forest, including areas of the Blue Ridge Parkway. My best friend who happens to be a dog, Penny joins me on every hike and I encourage you to bring your leashed best friend as well. Happy hiking!
