HIGHEST POINT - Posing near the sign at King Mountain from left, Crystal Cockman, Karen Auman and Marla Couthard. 

This past Saturday, two friends and I did a hike I’ve done several times before but is always very meaningful to me because it’s on a trail I helped build on land I helped protect. This hike is about 7 miles in length and starts at the Luther Trailhead off Pisgah Covered Bridge Road. This trailhead is not easy to find, as you basically turn in at the Luthers’ driveway and then take the USFS road to the left to a USFS gate. From here, you can hike 7 miles to Jumping Off Rock on the Luther Spur and the Uwharrie Trail.
