    I haven't done Twin Brook Trail in twenty years, but I remember it being a very pleasant hike up to Galehead from 13 Falls. The upper FBT from Garfield was a mess when I did it, though it was very...

    Details are a bit fuzzy in my memory, but there's an area south of Asheville that I went to several times. The Black Balsam area was fantastic--open meadows, high mountains, long views, and plenty of...

    It's been a few years, but I'm pretty sure I came up from the highway (Rt 56?), not the BRP, and it was around 3000' vertical. Perhaps there's more than one way, though.
