  • "Go outside. Don’t tell anyone and don’t bring your phone. Start walking and keep walking until you no longer know the road like the palm of your hand, because we walk the same roads day in and day out, to the bus and back home and we cease to see. We walk in our sleep and teach our muscles to work without thinking and I dare you to walk where you have not yet walked and I dare you to notice. Don’t try to get anything out of it, because you won’t. Don’t try to make use of it, because you can’t. And that’s the point. Just walk, see, sit down if you like. And be. Just be, whatever you are with whatever you have, and realise that that is enough to be happy..." -Charlotte Eriksson 👏

  • A new trail for hiking and mountain biking just opened in Bracken Mountain Preserve. The 1.5-mile Pinnacle Trail offers a steep climb with 500 feet of elevation gain and creates a new loop, bringing the trail system in Bracken Mountain Preserve to nearly 9 miles and creating a direct connection between Brevard and Pisgah National Forest. 🌿

Aaron Bland, a planner with the City of Brevard, says, “Bracken is a valuable amenity the City is proud to provide. It connects citizens to their natural and cultural heritage, promotes healthy living, adds to our area’s reputation for fantastic outdoor recreation, and is a prime example of the great things that can be achieved through collaboration.” We couldn't agree more. 👏
