What a lovely park to visit! The Birkhead Mountain Wilderness offers great trails for beginner backpackers or dayhikers due to mild elevation gains/losses, well-marked trails, and readily available water sources. High points of this area include: ENORMOUS variety of impressive and beautiful mushrooms, lovely fern gullies, and interesting historically significant sites and ruins. I visited in late August and found the temperatures to be moderate and pleasant. Downside: VERY buggy, both with mosquitoes and spiders. I was required to carry a stick out in front of me to avoid multiple webs in my face about every 5 yards. Overall, a beautiful location with interesting history and a great place to bring friends and family.
