The Natural Beauty of Lonesome Valley
CLE attendees enjoyed a private guided hike with Gary Wein.
Over 300 acres of the Lonesome Valley box canyon have been conserved as part of the development plan including a 24 acre conservation easement and the restoration of Logan Branch. The canyon boasts the tallest wall of sheer granite rock face east of the Mississippi River, Laurel Knob about 1200 vertical feet. Attendees also visited the top of Laurel Knob owned by the Highlands-Cashiers Land Trust where they saw a rare granite dome ecosystem.
