Parkway hike takes in the views from Fryingpan
The hunt for summer wildflowers will be on with a view during a Blue Ridge Parkway guided hike to Fryingpan Fire Tower 10 a.m. Friday, July 18. The 1.5-mile roundtrip venture will include a search for summer wildflowers on the way up and a talk about the history of the tower and the life of a fire lookout. A climb up the stairs will yield stunning 360-degree views.
The group will meet at the Fryingpan Trail pullout at mile post 409.6, 1 mile south of Pisgah Inn. Park at the gravel Forest Service road but don’t block the gate. Water, good walking shoes and clothing for changeable weather are required.
