Nice trail with the dogs. The trail head at Charles Owens park can be tricky to find. The doggos loved splashing around in the river. Low traffic this time of year which was a plus as much of the trial isn’t very wide. Was super sad to see invasive bamboo along most of the trail but otherwise beautiful and easy hike.

Easy trail that follows along the Swannanoa River. About 6 miles round trip. Connects to other trails maintained by Warren Wilson College. Parked at Charles Owen Park to access the east end of the trail. Got the river to your left and farmland to the right. Plenty of outlets to the river off trail. You'll run into some of the Warren Wilson students chillin' and smokin'.

great 6 mile out and back if you park at the baseball fields. pretty much flat with twists and turns that often funnel into a single track. several swimming holes along the route and connects to several other trails (although some are private). highly recommend for running or taking a dip in the river.

This is a really nice trail to just go out for a little walk on, very welly maintained and great views of the river.

LOVE this trail. Farmland on one side, river on the other. Easy trail, great for kids, lots of opportunity to play in the river.

I went when it had been raining and it does get slippery and muddy in parts after rain but it is very calm and secluded and a nice run
