Picnics and Day Trips: Trip # 3 of the Asheville Series-Hickory Nut Forest

GREEN Asheville area's Hickory Nut Forest Conservation Acreage and evolving eco-community is a waterfall Hickory Nut Forest Ashevilleperfect spot to picnic. Over 800 acres of conservation land surround you. Trails lead to those 800  acres and adjoin 275 acres where community buildings and an organic garden soon will expand into healthy possibilities.

Here you can spread your picnic blanket and just
   B R E A T H E.   

INSPIRATION. You can stand by a waterfall and soon discover that there are 15 or more waterfalls on the Conservation Partner's Lands. Or hike the trails leading to wildflower meadows and rock-climbing adventure.

Maybe you would prefer to spend a soft afternoon and picnic out by the heirloom apple orchard and the "grape garden"...that is if the noisy Hickory Nut Creek doesn't first beckon you to visit. . . .When you think about how much family and friends could love it here, I know you will smile.

PICNIC CONTEXT: Possibly consider the building sites with good solar-orientation so close by, while you are enjoying your day on the conservation land. Hickory Nut Forest is an Ecovillage in the making. If picnics are not enough, you could live at Hickory Nut Forest (conervation neighborhood) where you can choose to enjoy the benefits of community camaraderie and all that surrounds you. ..al the time!

LOCATION. This Asheville Area Picnic is just  a 22-30 minute pleasant drive from Asheville, N.C.. Along the way, you will find CSAs, tailgate mamrkets, and places to pick organic begetables and fruits. Asheville, as you know, has a healthy impetus for sustainable development,  diverse economic structure bases on tourism, services, and  eco-innovative attitudes.  Asheville's overall education levels, wages and per capita income levels are on the "plus" side.  Standards of living are, too.

janeAnne,  I'm just getting jealous reading about Hickory Nut Forest.  Yes, I would love to have a picnic there..after visiting a place to buy local fruits and veggies.  :) Seriously.  Then, I'd go horseback riding.

Hi janeAnne - this post made my eyes water because we know someone who would have loved to have visited this beautiful spot, if only he were still here.........  He would have just loved that area, he loved waterfalls.

Isn't it great even just to imagine a soft summer afternoon by a waterfall? Hard to decide which is the best picnic spot, though. Hickory Nut Forest offers so many =)
