We’ve added Carl Sandburg National Historic Site as a trailhead on HikeWNC.info. Though the area doesn’t contain a huge number of trails, it’s a nice place to hike and relax, and perhaps do some writing in seclusion as Carl Sandburg once did at his homestead named “Connemara”. About five miles of trails and paths are there for you to explore, and it’s kid-friendly. Perhaps you’d like a nice place to relax, enjoy some quiet seclusion and maybe even do a little writing yourself. This would make a great place to do that and ponder what Sandburg himself might have used as inspiration when he lived here.
Besides hiking, the National Park Service site offers a variety of activities during the summer and, of course, tours of the main house and prize dairy goat farm. Plan a visit to Flat Rock including some hiking here this weekend!
