    Ridgecrest trails "closed for the summer"
    Just FYI: Ridgecrest conference center has closed public access to their trail system for the summer camp season. Understandable, but a bummer. The gate guard let us take an alternate route up yesterday, but I definitely got the vibe that wasn't going to happen again.

    Bummer indeed. I believe you can access through the adjacent neighborhood, but it sounds like that may be your alternate route. They would also deny access during special events in the off season. It would be nice if there was some other way to access Old Toll.

    It's a bit on the pavement, but you can always just go up through Montreat.
