Hike down the Art Loeb trail and enjoy the expansive vistas Black Balsam has to show you! Located in Pisgah National Forest in North Carolina, Black Balsam is a beautiful “knob” home to the Blue Ridge Mountains. Experience fresh mountain air and challenge yourself in one of our favorite places to backpack! We will depart from the CORE building early Friday morning (around 4AM) and return late Sunday evening. Get outside of Gainesville for a weekend – adventure awaits!
