The Marvelous 9-Mile Trail In North Carolina Leads Adventurers To A Little-Known Plaque

Like so many worthwhile hikes, Graybeard Trail in Montreat, North Carolina, sits in the sprawling Pisgah National Forest. The diversified journey follows a creek with mixed terrain of water, rocks, and mud leading up to switchbacks. A steeper climb ahead takes you to the beloved Graybeard Mountain summit, about 4.8 miles in or halfway — and the best spot to stop for lunch. While this trail can be challenging, look out for the gifts along the way from wildlife to a little-known plaque. Let’s take a look.

Editor’s Note: Please note this trail is on private property. Visit the Montreat Wilderness website for more information about visiting.
