walking

Pretty scenic walk through the woods and loved the talking trees and rocks. There is more than just the 1 mile loop (longer trail about 8 miles and a lake w/gazebo). Good family fun and dog friendly.

walking

Not my cup of tea. This park is full of paved trails in open spaces. We completed the 3 colored trails in what seemed like minutes. Better off skipping this one. This is for kids, moms with strollers, and people in the neighborhood walking their dogs.

hiking

Pretty leisurely hike. I enjoy creeks, rocks, and waterfalls, this trail has all of these, but you have to go to the river.
It is hard to find. The directions listed here are so close, it's about 100 yards before this on a small slightly rocked pull off. We found it behind the gate at the big wooden sign as well.

road biking

If you are biking make sure you bring a patch kit &/or extra tube there is someone putting tacks on the trail ! My husband and another lady got a flat and we found about 30 tacks on the trail . I called the police about it. We Love the trail for triking and walking.

on Linn Cove Viaduct Via Tan...
1 day ago

hiking

Starting at the Stack Rock parking area, I hiked Tanawha past the Stack Rock to the Visitor Center; I have hiked the upper side of the viaduct via Tanawha in the past, so this time went to Yonahlossee Overlook and hiked back along the road to the Viaduct for a different perspective. Quite a bit of engineering, good display in the VC. If you are traveling the BRP, worth a stop.

on Black Rock Nature Trail
1 day ago

Decent hike, fairly easy. Trail was rocky and muddy. Downhill from parking lot. Lots of rhododendron along trail. No views along the way. View at end is atop a big rock that is a 3-4 stride up with the aid of a cable. Nice view and nice spot for lunch if not too crowded (and too crowded meaning more than 4 people there- the Rock is not that big that it can comfortably accommodate more than 4-5 people sitting). Basically, the view is what you get at the swinging bridge, just lower down and less crowded.

Great trail. Can be somewhat difficult. The views and experience are totally worth it.

Great trail with connections on backside of grandfather mountain. Definitely more to explore but not too difficult

on Elk Knob State Natural Ar...
1 day ago

hiking

Nicely maintained trail. 1.9 miles to the top of a 5520 foot view on north side and south side. I like the south side view better (plus a good sunset spot). The trail can get a little steep and is mostly gravel to some larger rocks. Beautiful vegetation and flowers.
