I spend a lot of time looking at maps, studying guide books, and scouring the internet for ideas. Below are a few blogs I have found that I really like:

  • NC Waterfalls – Best source for waterfalls in the NC/SC area
  • Brenda J. Wiley – Provides GPX files of trails around Panthertown Area
  • Two Brothers Hiking Co – Detailed trip of Foothills Trail
  • DWHike – Lots of trip reports and photos from Pisgah area (and many other areas as well)

I sometimes post some my adventures on the Outbound here. This is a good site to see what others are up to and find new trails to explore.
