After a brief tour of Catawba County, I drove into Burke County to the South Mountains State Park and hiked one the easiest trails, the High Shoals Falls Loop Trail. Much of the hike was straight up steps built into the side of the mountain. But the views were well worth the effort.
This is a nature hike, so there are lots and lots of trees, leaves, rocks, and water. The view from the top was breathtaking.
I really miss the mountains. Next time I visit I'm going to try for one of the scenic overlooks.
