Break out the shorts and sunglasses for Friday’s hike. The shorts for the unseasonably warm weather and the sunglasses for the winter-white legs on display. We will hike the Art Loeb from the Boy Scout camp to Deep Gap where we will give Cold Mt the cold shoulder and continue on the Art Loeb to the Little East Fork Trail and back to our cars. Meet at Pisgah Ranger Station at 8:30. Please RSVP.

A few clouds early, otherwise mostly sunny. High 79F. Winds SW at 10 to 20 mph.
