The Pink Beds

The Pink Beds Professional Review and Guide

"Take a biologically, historically, and visually enriching hike at the Pink Beds, a highland bog entrenched in mountain ramparts. Walk the perched valley, sauntering through wetlands rich with plant and animal life. Hike down the upper South Fork Mills River valley using bridges and boardwalks aplenty. Circle back through the Pink Beds in a blend of wet and dry situations. Finally, travel through and near meadows, availing views and wildlife viewing opportunities. The walk is family friendly with a shortcut opportunity and elevation variations of under 200 feet.

This is a fine family hike here in the highlands of the Pisgah National Forest. For starters, the trailhead is at an alluring picnic area with a shelter that is situated 3,200 feet in elevation. You can have a tasty mountain meal before or after your hike."
