Walnut mountain is the mountain we live on. You can access it right from your cabin door. It is full of Appalachian delights. There are many springs that run off this mountain and feed our waterfall. It is not unusual to see water just bubbling up from the ground. To us, nothing is more precious than this clear, fresh water.
We feel we are stewards of this land and we are blessed to live here. We love sharing this with others.
Our house sits 0.5 miles from the cabins. There is an old forest road that leads up behind our house and continues on to the to a place called Kale Gap. This is the route that families took for many years to connect the Roaring Fork community with the WASP community which was located on the other side.
On one side of this gap is Walnut mountain, on the other is Bluff mountain. The Appalachian Trail crosses here. There are many loops you can make with the AT and the forest road to give you some beautiful day hikes.
I have included some pictures of this mountain. To the South of Kale gap is Lemon Gap and Max Patch. To the North is Bluff Mountain and then on to Hot Springs. There is a nice bald to the north called Cat Pens.
The hiking possibilities are endless. Tom and I really enjoy just wandering through the woods here. It is a very special place.
