Getting There

Beautiful walk around a mountain lake, lots of obvious beaver activity. The Price Lake Loop Trail circles a beautiful mountain lake. This is a good hike for anyone due to the short distance and flat terrain. Some areas of the trail may be muddy after winter snows or spring rains. From the Price Lake Overlook, go to the left over the bridge. Follow the trail into the woods. As you walk around the lake you'll notice a lot of beaver sign on the surrounding trees. The muddy areas on the trail near the back of the lake are also a result of the beavers work. Continue following this easy, flat trail around the lake. You'll walk through a nice campground area as you return back to the parking area.

Blue Ridge Parkway - 828-298-0398

The trail begins at the Price Lake Overlook (mp 296.7) on the Blue Ridge Parkway. This overlook is located in the Julian Price Memorial Park between Linville and Blowing Rock.

Very nice and easy. There are a number of places with roots and a little mud, but you can navigate around them.

Easy walk around the lake. Quite muddy even without recent rain but that is normal for fall. It’s easy to follow.

Nice trail with rhododendrons are nice. The trail has views of the lakes most of the time. If it rains, this trail can get muddy. Completely flat, easy loop.

Easy walk around the lake. Extremely muddy and needs some additional traction laid. Beautiful views of the water with mountain backdrop.

Relatively easy hike around the beautiful lake. A little muddy in spots due to all the rain but a very enjoyable hike on a beautiful day.

Fun trail but incredibly muddy even though it hadn't rained for almost 48 hours. If you're older with balance problems, this trail is better categorized as moderate. Some areas required us to lend a hand to the older member of our party...
