Mark had to work today, but since the weather was nice we decided to squeeze a short hike in before sunset. We decided to check out the Pocosin Mission, a 1.9 mile easy round trip hike that takes you to the ruins of an Episcopal mission. But first, we came upon a cabin that PATC maintains and apparently rents out. It seems to be in decent shape, but I'm not sure I'd want to rent it as a relaxing getaway!
After an easy hike along a fire road, we came to the ruins. The steps to the church are still there, but not much else!
This is the most intact part of the ruins. It's not easy to find information about what the mission was like, but I believe it was established in 1904.
