If you are looking for a quiet hike in nature to get away from it all, this is not it. This trail loops around part of the Asheville commuter section of the Blue Ridge Parkway, so there is quite a bit of traffic noise. But, if you want to take a quick stroll after work or dinner or take the kids on a nature scavenger hunt, this is a great place.

This loop hike will take about 30 minutes. Very kid friendly - grab an activity brochure to let the kids identify plans and bugs. Be careful when crossing the Blue Ridge Parkway at the halfway point as there is a lot of traffic on this stretch.

Easy trail through the woods. Nice place to stretch your legs while visiting the visitor center.
