For residents and visitors alike Whiteside Mountain is one of our areas must do hikes. The views are breathtaking and the hike is moderate and accessible to almost everyone. On a recent sunny Sunday we noticed how many families jumped at the chance for a family outing and hiked up the mountain. Facebook was filled with pictures of families sharing their memories of what for many was the first real hike of the season. For more information on this geological wonder check out a recent Asheville Citizen Times article here. Next time you make the hike you will approach it with a whole new sense of wonder. Happy Trails!
