Additional Information

The Coronavirus has upended our lives and now it has affected our ability to hike  as a group. The High Country Hikers want to be responsible citizens by following guidelines for "Social Distancing."  We feel that in these times of uncertainty we need to take a cautious approach.   

 Many of us are of you will choose to continue hiking but on an informal basis with one or two others.


who we are

 Come with us and experience the diverse natural wonders of Western North Carolina and the Upstate of South Carolina.  Our hikes cover a range of terrain from gentle slopes to strenuous mountains, waterfalls and rocky peaks, spring wildflowers fall colors, fog covered mountains and clear views for miles. 

Join Us On The Trail

We are a hiking club based out of Hendersonville, NC.  We have hikes on Mondays and Thursdays every week.  We meet at  designated parking areas and carpool to the trail head.  We leave by 8:30am sharp.  Our hikes typically range from 5 to 10 miles in length with total ascents can range to over 2000 feet. We have two hikes on Monday and two on Thursday - one being easier and the other harder.

The places we go

We have a wide range of interesting hikes.  We range from very easy and nearby hikes such as Carl Sandburg's Connemara to distant and difficult hikes such as Mount LeConte in  the Smokys.  The majority of our hikes are in the Pisgah National Forest, but we have a number of hikes in DuPont State Forest and in  the Upstate of South Carolina
