2023 Hike-Zoom Schedule

Thanks for being one of our most generous supporters. You make our work for the MST possible.

As part of the Friends of the MST Trailblazer Circle, we hope you’ll join us for one or many of the events in a special series of hikes and zooms we’ve organized for supporters like you. We’ll be leading hikes in various locations around the state and holding regular zoom calls, so check back often for new events.

We have two goals for the hikes and zooms. One is to help you experience special parts of the trail, learn about our work, and meet board members, staff and other MST supporters like you. The other is for us to hear from you. We would love to get to know you, learn what inspires you about the trail, and hear ideas you may have about ways we can expand our impact.

Group sizes will be limited on the hikes, so be sure to sign up early, and please only sign up for hikes you know you can attend. On longer hikes, we will provide box lunches and snacks. Zooms have no size limit, but sign up early for those too!

Before your event, we will send you all the details about meeting location, zoom link, what to wear and bring with you, etc.

Blue Ridge Hike on the MST

Friday, October 27th, 10am

Join Brent Laurenz, Friends of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail Executive Director, and Marcia Bromberg, President of the Board of Directors, for a beautiful hike in the mountains with breathtaking views and hopefully gorgeous fall color. We’ll begin our hike outside Asheville at Elk Pasture Gap and hike along the MST for a total of around 3.3 miles. As we hike, we can share updates from across the MST and highlight some of the local area’s history. Lunch provided after the hike.

MST Segment 3
