Montreat Trails: The trail system above Montreat College boasts over 20 miles of hiking trails on 2500 pristine acres. With so many trails to choose from we suggest stopping at the Montreat Conference Center to pick up a trail map or view it online by clicking the image below. A suggested 5-mile moderate hike would be the Greybeard Trail to Pot Cove Gap to the Trestle Trail to Walker’s Knob (4780 feet) back down Greybeard. Woodward Falls (pictured above) is a short walk to the left from Greybeard.
