Description Starting at the Chinese Mountains trailhead, we follow the South Chinese Trail to its juncture with Beech’s Mountain Trail. Along this trail we ascend many steep rock bluffs with spectacular views to the east, west and south from the open bluffs. At the top of Beech’s Mountain, we make a steep descent through the forest to an old rough logging road. Eventually the route veers away from the road onto mossy bluffs with convoluted route-finding using flagging tape. The route connects with the North Chinese Mountain Trail (essentially a steep rubbly old logging road) which we descend to the parking lot.
Meeting Place Chinese Mountain parking lot
Departure Time 9:00 10 am or earlier if hot . Contact coordinator.
Difficulty Moderate to difficult (many steep and potentially slippery bluffs to negotiate, as well as steep rocky logging roads)
Costs none
Trip limits 8 participants in 2 pods
Dogs? OK if not running and under control. Owner must have leash available.
Notes: Sturdy hiking shoes/boots required. Coordinator will have 2 family walkie talkies.  Hiking poles may be helpful. Bring a lunch or snack and sufficient water. Estimated time 4 hours.
