Mitchell Falls Hike
Today, the Museum will host a 6.5-mile hike on a private land preserve, with permission of the owners, to what is now known as Mitchell Falls. This is the site where Dr. Elisha Mitchell fell to his death while trying to prove the mountain that now bears his name is the highest in Eastern North America. The hike is moderate, with a steep descent into the falls themselves.
Difficulty: Moderate, 6.5 miles
Start Time: 9:30 AM
Cost: $35 for members, $50 for nonmembers.
