A rare romp in the watershed

Written by 

A guided hike in the Waynesville watershed preserve, an 8,600-acre tract typically off-limits to the public, will be offered at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 9.

The preserve reaches from Allens Creek up to the Blue Ridge Parkway, a massive flank that cradles the southern end of town. The tract serves as the source of Waynesville’s drinking water.

A 3-5 mile ecology hike will be led by Dr. Peter Bates, a forester with Western Carolina University and Naturalist Don Hendershot. Hendershot will offer an additional birding hike at 8 a.m.

Spots fill up quickly. www.townofwaynesville.org or 828.452.2491.

    art theplaceI did it again. It’s 9 a.m. last Saturday at the starting line of the Cashiers Trail Mix five-mile backwoods race. I knew I should have gotten more sleep the night before, should have at least had something to eat that morning. Shouldn’t have overindulged in the libations of Friday night, nor said the things I now regretted to my girlfriend.
