Exceeds Expectations  Sucess!

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.

Little Green  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: Various unnamed trails. Date Climbed: 08-19-2004  Sucess!

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.
