Hikers Club heading to Jones and Elk Falls in NC

Hikers Club heading to Jones and Elk Falls in NC

The Johnson County Hikers Club is open to everyone. You do not have to be highly experienced though the ability to hike the length of the trail is essential. Beginners and supervised children are welcome. We will meet in the parking lot of the Food Lion on the Hwy. 421 at 8:45 and leave at 9:00 sharp unless otherwise stated. We carpool from there to the hike sites. If you can’t meet us at Food Lion, we will be happy to look for you at the Trailhead. Bring a walking stick, lunch, plenty of water and sunscreen and a hat often comes in handy. All hikes are on Saturday unless otherwise stated. Because of weather conditions or unexpected events we may need to substitute our stated destination for something more fitting that day. If you have questions call Carol at 727-5947 or check us on Facebook. June 25 – Today we will head just over the North Carolina line to hike Jones and Elk Falls, so we will need to leave at 8:30. The total distance is just over five miles and about 1/3 of that will be uphill. This trail might be better done in long pants rather than shorts since we walk through a field early on. If two waterfalls are not enough to tempt you, we will be passing the lovely Davis sisters fruit stand on the way home. Yum…
