Swannanoa Valley Museum announces moderate hikes to historic locations
(Mountain XPress) Almost 50 people have now completed the Swannanoa Valley Museum’s popular, but strenuous Swannanoa Valley Rim Explorer Hike Series, and more than two-dozen hikers have already registered for the 2014 series. But many Swannanoa Valley residents have expressed interest in learning the fascinating history of the valley on more moderate hikes. So beginning March 15 and continuing once a month through October, the Museum will offer a new moderate hiking series, consisting of eight, approximately 3-mile hikes to historic locations around the Swannanoa Valley, one in each of their communities. For interested hikers, two free informational meetings will be held – one on Thursday, March 6 at 7:00pm at the Swannanoa Valley Museum and a second on Tuesday, March 11 at 7:00pm at Black Dome in Asheville.
