The trail winds up the side of Fisher Peak through a variety of vegetation. At the lower elevation the trail follows a stream through mixed pine and hardwoods. Higher up, the blooms of azaleas, mountain laurel and Catawba rhododendron provide a spectacular display in May. They give way to a diverse second growth forest of oak, poplar, maple and sourwood trees. Look for abundant signs of animal life.

A nice nature walk/hike if nothing else. Lots of wildflowers. There is no summit... there is no making it to the “peak”.

This is a very nice woodland trail. It was especially nice today because of the high winds. The woodland area was well protected from the wind. I recommend this trail after the leaves fall. Otherwise the forest will be dense and less open.

Nice trail theu the woods. We saw interesting wildlife- a tick and a Timber Rattlesnake about 4 ft long!! We had to wait about 15 minutes until he uncoiled and went off into the woods.

This is such a nice trail. A lot of it is through the woods of the mountains surrounding the musical center. The woods have a lot of mature trees, ferns, it's just beautiful. You do go up and down some hills but nothing drastic. Trails are very well maintained and marked. The bridge is out at the creek so you do have to cross the creek by walking on rocks. You could get wet. I highly recommend the trail and I will go back soon to hike it again.

One of two trails at the Blue Ridge Music Center right off the Blue Ridge Parkway near the Virginia/North Carolina line. You can combine the two trails into an approximately three mile loop. The Fisher Peak Trail heads up higher through the forest and abundant vegetation, with more elevation change. It is a nice moderate hike through the trees.
