Join us for an early morning hike up to the top of Bearwallow Mountain. There will be a sunrise workout with Jamie Nakamura from MADabolic Asheville. Refreshements will follow!
The hike is .5 miles to the top and the workout will be about 30 mins. If you just want to join us for the hike and watch the sunrise that is okay too!
Meet us at the trail head at the top of Bear Wallow Road with a flashlight and lots of layers. Search for Bearwallow Trail on your smartphone.
Bear Wallow Road is a gravel road. There is another paved road but might take 10 minutes longer depending on where in Asheville you are coming from.
Take I-240 east for about 3 1/2 miles and continue straight onto US Hwy. 74-A east. Follow 74-A east for about 12 1/2 miles (up a very long set of switchback curves) to the town of Gerton. Turn right on Bearwallow Mountain Road. The road becomes gravel, and gets steep and kind of bumpy, but passenger cars shouldn't have trouble making it except maybe in very severe weather conditions. Go about 2.1 miles to the parking area on the left at the rusted gate (where the road turns back to pavement).
