This summer we invite all artists and nature lovers to join us at Cataloochee Ranch for a day of bird watching, hiking, reading, painting and relaxing. If you are a painter, quilter, knitter, sculptor, writer, poet, reader, hiker, birder or even an all around nature lover, you don’t want to miss a relaxing day trip!
Cataloochee Ranch was founded in 1933 and was originally located in the serene and beautiful Cataloochee Valley. In 1938 Mr. Tom purchased a large part of the present Ranch property on Fie Top Mountain and he inherited a sturdy stone and log cattle barn, now the main Ranch house, and several derelict cabins and sheds. Its 5,000-foot elevation bordering the Great Smoky Mountains National Park also created the ideal combination of extraordinary mountain views and wonderfully cool summer temperatures.
Participants are responsible for their own transportation and bringing their own art supplies, lawn chair, blanket, etc. Lunch may be purchased at the ranch.
Advance reservations are due no later than August 7.
This is a free event and open to the public but Cataloochee Ranch would like a head count. For more information and to make your reservation, please call the HCAC at 828-452-0593.
