Kelsey Trail Hike

Saturday October 14, 2023 

Follow in the footsteps of Samuel Kelsey on the historic Kelsey Trail.  Join leaders from the Highlands Greenway as we hike the trail from Whiteside Mountain to the end of 5th Street. 


This four and a half mile moderate hike will take you through what was once the 'Forest Primeval' and include side trips to Leila's Rock in Wildcat Cliffs Country Club, Garnet Rock in Cullasaja Club, Whiteside View (Overlook) in Cullasaja Club, and an eagle's view of Highlands Falls.


The hike will begin at the parking lot behind the Recreation Center and conclude at Kelsey-Hutchinson Founders Park. Each hiker is asked to Donate $75 in support of the Greenway Trail system of Highlands.
