Linville Gorge -- often called The Grand Canyon of the Southeast -- is one of the most popular hiking destinations in the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina. Linville Gorge Wilderness encompasses the wild backcountry on either side of the Linville River, which carved the Gorge over millions of years. Trails in the gorge are rugged -- bring your hiking poles if you use them.

Does anyone know if the fires at linville are closing this trail down?? Plan on going tmrw??

Awesome views!! Definitely not an easy hike.

We completed this trail with our 4 year old. It was tough coming up, but worth it.

Some great views, just wish everything was closer.

The overlooks provided a great view of the falls. The short trail with some elevation changes made for a fun afternoon.
