Family Fall Foliage Hike

The Rumbling Bald Trail is a loop trail that meanders through a beautiful hardwood forest along the south face of Rumbling Bald Mountain, revealing huge boulder fields and the base of the cliff areas. Join a park ranger as we explore the signs of the autumn season and explain the science behind changing leaf colors.  This moderate hike is very family friendly.

Bring comfortable hiking shoes, plenty of drinking water, and clothes for the weather.

We are still emphasizing the NC Dept. of Health & Human Services 3 W’s:
Wear a cloth mask over your nose and mouth in all buildings (required) and on all trails (recommended);
Wait 6 feet apart and avoid close contact with others that are not in your party;
Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer frequently.
