July Class

Our July class will be Next Level Map & Compass! It will be in the shop on the 23rd @ 6:00PM.

This class will provide information for you to grow your working knowledge of compass and map reading. We will have some points set up for you to find towards the end of the class. If you attended our compass class in June this is a perfect “next step” in learning how to use a compass and map individually and together! You can sign up at info@thelocalhiker.com or in the store. This is a great opportunity for those new to hiking, scout/youth groups or those that just need a refresher!

Meet-Up Hike for July

Our July hike will be on the 25th @ 10am. We will be hiking Bridal Veil Falls in DuPont State Recreational Forest. We will meet at the Fawn Lake Access Area. See directions below.


A good route to get to the Fawn Lake Access is to head up I26 to exit 54 for US-25S toward US-176/N Carolina 225. Continue onto US-25S then take exit 3 for SR 1106/Green River Rd.


Follow Green River Rd for about 10.2 miles at that point, Green River turns into Reasonover RD. Continue for .9 mi in the sharp bend you will continue straight for a few hundred feet, make a sharp left for .1 mi the turn left 79ft turn right into the parking lot.  


GPS Coordinates: 35.160925, -82.604527
Note on the GPS Coordinates, you can plug these into a GPS, however, don't solely depend on it. The numbers must be put into your GPS/Smartphone exactly as they appear above. Usually it is pretty effective but don't put all your faith into electronics. ;) 


You can call the store or email us at info@thelocalhiker.com to get signed up or for additional information. See you on the trail!
