We have had some incredibly beautiful and mild weather this winter in Transylvania County--perfect hiking weather. In summer, with the trees loaded with leaves, the vistas can be limited, but this time of year, on a clear day you can see forever. Here are some shots from recent outings at East Fork Falls (just 5 miles from Ash Grove), Sassafras Mountain (the highest point in South Carolina, about 1/2 hour from Ash Grove) and Dupont State Forest (just 10 minutes from Ash Grove and home to 6 spectacular waterfalls and 90+ miles of hiking and mountain biking trails).
