    Western North Carolina, John Rock Hang, 18-21 July 2024

    OK boys and girls here it is.

    You are invited to attend the John Rock Hang from 18-21 July 2024 in the beautiful Pisgah National Forest.

    This event will be a bring your own food however nothing wrong with sharing. I will supply firewood and it will be conveniently in the back bed of my pickup truck for anyone who can help bring wood to the campsite.

    Looking forward to seeing all the Hammock Hangers I have not seen in a while.

    If you need instructions to the trailhead parking lot, I recommend doing a google search for the Pisgah Fish Hatchery or meet someone in the Walmart Parking lot to follow. Thatís the start of the adventure.

    If you have not been to this area, well there is plenty to do, hiking, waterfalls, chilling, fishing, etc.

    There is a stream that runs along the campsite so water is available, would recommend filtering.

    Great event to check out our gear and share information about any new gear.

    From the parking lot the hike is about 1.3 miles uphill to the site, some parts of the hike are hilly but take your time and you will be fine, if you need any help let one of us know so we can meet you are the parking lot.

    Sorry no cell phone service once you get Ĺ mile into the Pisgah Forest. Would recommend stopping the Walmart Parking lot for your last call before entering the forest. I heard word that if you take the Cat back Loop trail to John Rock you can get reception, I had no luck with AT+T.

    You can expect an afternoon or early evening shower or maybe a thunderstorm so be prepared. This is not car camping but not wilderness camping either.

    Hope to see you soon.

    I have not been to John Rock since last year so any new developments on the CatGap Loop would be appreciated.

    My daughter and her boyfriend hiked the whole loop 2 weekends ago. Bridges have been rebuilt. We should be G2G.
