Lake James State Park
There is no better time to hike in the mountains of North Carolina than the fall and with that, arguably no better time to hike at Lake James State Park. So come out and do it! Meet Park Ranger Kevin Bischof at the Catawba River Area to enjoy the park in all its fall glory. Along the way you will discover how the leaves got those beautiful fall colors and what happened to the summer green we grew used to seeing for the last six months. If you wonder what types of trees bring your favorite autumn reds, or which trees bring brown and yellow to the color wheel, this is a hike you won’t want to miss. In addition to the color change, tree ID will be discussed along the hike. Meet at the office of the Catawba River Area at 1 p.m.
