2015 May 8 – WNC View Hikes.com officially launched! The site is now complete although there are some photo galleries that will need to be enhanced during the year.  It is our intention to eventually tell the story of each hike using the photo galleries to escort the reader through the hike from trailhead to destination and return and some of that information is currently missing.  It is also likely that there will be some initial errors that will need to be corrected during the year as well.  We have high standards for accuracy so please bear with us as we validate and update this site through the coming months.
