We hiked about ~7.5 miles through Panthertown Valley yesterday. We started at the Cold Mountain Entrance and hiked to Greenland Creek Falls. From there, we backtracked a bit then headed over towards Big Green.
The weather was a bit overcast and rainy, but we decided to hike the 5.3 mile John’s Rock loop in Pisgah National Forest. You climb about ~1200 feet over the course of the hike, but it is well worth it. At the top, you get a great view of Looking Glass.
