Tanawha Trail from Price Lake is a 21.7 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Blowing Rock, NC that features beautiful wild flowers and is rated as moderate. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, and trail running and is accessible from April until October.
I loved it! There were beautiful flowers and great views.
Looking for a review and map of the 13 miler!
The Tanawa trail is over 13 miles long, and contained in a separate listing, but this trail goes around Cold Prong Pond (according to the "start symbol" on the map. This trail is a good access trail for the Tanawa / MST, and loops around a pond that is always dry. I hiked it, and there is no pond anymore- its a dry grassland. The Actual Tanawa trail is very nice, with rolling meadows, and great views of Grandfather mountain and Wilson Creek Valley.
