Nantahala and Pisgah National Forests Plan

The National Forest Service has announced the Nantahala and Pisgah National Forests Plan You may have read or heard about the plan in the local media.  The Forest Plan has been under development for many years and once approved it will be in place for 15 years.

I encourage all hikers to examine the plan in as much detail as possible.  Some elements of the plan will affect hikers directly.  Our hikers would be best served to review the “North Slope” and “Pisgah Ledge” sections of the plan.

A public comment period has been established until May 14.  Public information meetings will be held at various locations throughout the district. The closest one to us will be held on:

March 16, 5:30-8:30 pm at the Rogow Family Community Room, Brevard
