As part of the GO Gathering, take a leisurely hike for swimming/sunbathing at Kilburn Pond in Pisgah State Park, a short drive from MountainSide!
In the heat of summer there's nothing more refreshing than a cool dip in a remote pond! A swimming experience on the more natural and secluded side [without lifeguards, swimsuit optional]. There is a spot with large rocks on the shoreline good for sunbathing and swimming at this secluded pond!
The hike starts out following an old gravel road, Kilburn Road where in .06 miles we reach the start of the loop. We’ll take a right in about 0.1 mile we’ll look for herd paths that will lead us to a rocky outcropping where we can sunbathe and swim. We plan on spending a couple of hours here for sunbathing and multiple dips into Kilburn Pond! Feeling refreshed, it will be a short walk back to our cars.
Bring water, lunch, snacks, towel, hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, etc. If there are people nearby we'll have to wear swim trunks so please bring them.
We will meet at the MountainSide Campground Canteen at 1:00PM to arrange carpooling to the trailhead.
If you are NOT spending the weekend at MountainSide Campground, here is the address:
