The combination of a moderate hike through a wilderness area and a gentle yoga class on a mountaintop clearing is one sure to leave your heart full and soul soothed.
Join Tara for a 3.8 mile hike through the pristine Middle Fork Wilderness. Much of the trail is flat on old logging road beds with a couple of small stream crossings.  The last 3/4 mile the trail becomes narrower, rocky and steep up to a gorgeous bald where we’ll have our 45 minute yoga practice and lunch.  On our return trip, we’ll pause in a beautiful evergreen grove for a 15 minute meditation before concluding our event.  Plan for the event to take 5-6 hours.
Directions:  From the entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway at Balsam Gap, Mile Marker 443, travel approximately 17 miles to Haywood Gap.  The next overlook on the Parkway is on the right and is the Rough Butt Bald overlook at Mile Marker 425. However, the overlook sign is no longer there so be sure to pull off on the next overlook past Haywood Gap! If you are nervous about finding the location on your own, Tara can meet you for you to follow her the morning of the event.  Unfortunately, due to Covid we cannot meet at the studio and car pool.  Individuals (or friends) must drive separately.
PLEASE CHECK YOUR EMAIL THE MORNING OF THE HIKE! Tara will let you know of any need to cancel due to weather before 7 AM.
Remember to bring your face mask!  It will not be required during the hike or yoga if we remain 6 feet apart.  However, there may be times you need to be closer to individuals and during that time, a face mask will be necessary.
Need to haves:
Plenty of water–I’d suggest at least a couple of water bottles.
Sturdy hiking boots and thick hiking socks
Old yoga mat or towel
Rain coat
Necessary medical items
Face mask
Nice to haves:
Trekking poles or hiking stick
Change of socks
Bug Spray
