The Kornegay map was really helpful. We visited the lower Greenland Creek Falls and Schoolhouse Falls as well as walking along the top of the pluton. It was a glorious walk; we'll be doing it again when the rhododendrons and laurel are in bloom.

Panthertown is a neat little area in my backyard. It has great waterfalls, exposed rock, and some nice views. However I think whoever called it "the Yosemite of the East" got a little carried away.

None of the trails in Panthertown Valley are either blazed or named. Don't get me wrong: there are plenty of trails. Some of them very well-worn. But since the state of NC is treating this area as wilderness, none of the paths are named or marked. The closest thing I saw to a blaze were some faint arrows painted on the exposed rock on top of Little Green Mountain. But these are, I take it, more to keep you from trampling on the very rare and extremely fragile plant communities up there.



As for the hike:



It has been the best hike I've taken all summer, and I've made quite a few since late May. The feeling of complete isolation was overwhelming. Not only was I alone on Little Green Mountain, but I FELT alone. Glorious silence. Just the wind and the birds and the mountain and me. I'll go back to Panthertown as soon as I can.
