Learn about the Valley History Explorer Hiking Series, sponsored by the Swannanoa Valley Museum, during a free informational meeting on Thursday, March 2, at 6:30 p.m., at the museum, 223 West State Street, in Black Mountain.
The Valley History Explorer Hiking Series offers the opportunity to revisit the past of the unique communities that make up the Swannanoa Valley through eight moderate (approx. three mile) hikes.
The hikes are led by knowledgeable historians, natives of the area with deep family ties, and experienced hike leaders. The informational meeting will provide an introduction to the program offerings, details about the individual hikes, advice for hikers, and information about cost and scholarships.
The first hike of the series takes place at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 11, and will explore the Bee Tree community, which was the location of the first permanent settlement in the Swannanoa Valley. The cost for each hike is $25 for museum members; $35 for non-members. Register for a single hike or the entire series.
