The trail winds up the side of Fisher Peak through a variety of vegetation. At the lower elevation the trail follows a stream through mixed pine and hardwoods. Higher up, the blooms of azaleas, mountain laurel and Catawba rhododendron provide a spectacular display in May. They give way to a diverse second growth forest of oak, poplar, maple and sourwood trees. Look for abundant signs of animal life.

One of two trails at the Blue Ridge Music Center right off the Blue Ridge Parkway near the Virginia/North Carolina line. You can combine the two trails into an approximately three mile loop. The Fisher Peak Trail heads up higher through the forest and abundant vegetation, with more elevation change. It is a nice moderate hike through the trees.
