Good trail-convenient & beautiful

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.

good trail and very well maintained. if your lucky you might see the mother Bear and her cub... we actually rescued a family who was 1st timers to the trail and thought they was lost.

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.
