Linville Gorge is a beautiful part of the mountains in North Carolina. Today we hiked down into the gorge, and up to Table Rock via the Conley Cove Trail. Snow was a special treat in April. The temperature was 19 degrees at 10am in the parking lot. This was the first time I really moved my legs after Umstead.
The gorge can be a tricky place to hike. You hike down and then back up. It reminds me of the Grand Canyon (on a smaller scale). Many people hike down and don’t realize how difficult it is to hike back up.
