Au programme

I'll take you on a 5.5 mile hike in Panthertown Valley, one of the most spectacular outdoor destinations anywhere in the east coast. Dozens of waterfalls and endless slickrock views fill the area - and we'll visit 2 epic overlooks and 3 waterfalls! If you're familiar with hiking in the mountains, this hike will be moderate at most. If you're new to hiking, you may consider this slightly more difficult.

Starting in Cashiers, we'll begin with a fresh cup of coffee at Buck's at the corner of the main stoplight in town. From there, you can carpool to the trailhead with me, or follow in your own vehicle. It's just 20 minutes to the trailhead and the last 1/4-mile requires a higher clearance or AWD vehicle.

From the trailhead, we'll start out with a long, steady climb up former logging roads to one of the best views in the region - Black Rock. This slickrock overlook is stunning, with views of Big Green, Little Green, Toxaway, and Cold Mountain. Leaving the rock, we'll make our way through rhododendron tunnels and laurel thickets before passing through a beautiful new growth pine forest.

To round out this 5.5ish mile loop, we'll pay visit to three stunning waterfalls, then enjoy one final view before returning to the trailhead. This hike is suitable for all abilities, and leashed/well-behaved dogs are always welcome!
Other things to note
This hike is perfect for any ability. If you're newer to hiking, the route can be shortened as needed. If you're an experienced hiker or trail runner, there are a few extra stops we can make along the way. Typically, we will spend 4 hours on the trail.

I am the owner and lead guide for White Dot Adventures, the first permitted outfitter to exclusively offer trail running tours and private hikes in Western North Carolina. I've traveled the country extensively via van (#vanlife), and I knew the very first time I stepped foot on trail in Pisgah - I wanted to live here.

I have guided first-time hikers -- and avid ultrarunners on adventures. In fact, prior to 2013 I was 80lbs heavier and had never run a mile in my life! I've seen it all and I'll be with you every step of the way to make sure you have an amazing day on the trail.

Destinations

Panthertown is loaded with countless waterfalls, hidden views, and an array of stunning flora - including a pure stand of Loblolly Pine. To put it simply, there is a reason I live 15 minutes from the trailhead - and hold one of the only commercial guiding permits for the valley.

Brendon is an exceptional licensed guide who will likely be one of the most experienced and safe guides you will meet. He was extremely knowledgeable of the trails and focused on safety and customizing the experience to our level of capability. Brendon has a great personality and his dog "G" was a great addition to the hike. he didn't watch the clock and tell us our time was up - he is all about the experience. we spent more than the allotted time together and he even took us to a great spot for a quick meal after the hike. Highly recommend - totally worth the price - Worth more than he charges !

If you're looking for both a fun and educational trek through Panthertown, Brendon's tour is the best. He's incredibly knowledgable about the area and all of the wildlife you see on your hike, which keeps everyone engaged as you move through the valley. He was very accommodating with us, dealing with unruly weather, and my husband and I truly enjoyed the whole experience. 5/5, definitely recommend :)
