You may be familiar with the Appalachian Trail, which trots through North Carolina. But do you know about the state's own Mountains-to-Sea Trail? Author and hiker Danny Bernstein will discuss the trail and her new book, Mountains to Sea Trail Across North Carolina, on Tuesday, March 5, at Diamond Brand.
The Western North Carolina Alliance is urging action against a proposed 472 acre logging project below Devil's Courthouse in the headwaters of the French Broad River. The area is adjacent to the popular Art Loeb Trail and in the view-shed of the Mountains-to-Sea Trail, according to the nonprofit environmental advocacy organization.

Housekeeper completed the journey; here's her early reflections on the journey.
