Trout Lily Creek Loop Trail Hike

Sunday, April 14

 1:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

Description: Join National Park Service Naturalist Jerry Hightower for one of the most scenic walks in the entire park. Enjoy the beautiful forest, grand vistas of Thornton and Devil’s Race Course Shoals, and the dramatic palisades created by the Brevard Fault. We will descend the ridge, loop around at the base of Thornton Cliffs, walk past Diving Rock Beach to Sandy Point, and return up the ridge. Please join us for this walk through an area of fantastic beauty.

Facilities: Located at Devil’s Stair Step three-quarters of the way through the hike

Difficulty: This walk is leisurely, with a steep trail leading to the floodplain and back to the parking lot. These walks are quite slow, with numerous stops to discuss items of interest along the way. Note: This walk is not suitable for very young children.

Bring: Dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes suitable for walking on a forest trail. Bring water and a snack. Binoculars and hand lenses are also recommended. 

Limit: 30 persons
