Western North Carolina Hikes

The Mountains of Western North Carolina are where you’ll find most of the insanely beautiful landscapes and, of course, waterfalls when hiking in North Carolina.

If you’re looking for hikes around Asheville (perfect for day trips!) and High Country spots, you’ll need at least a few days to work with. Check out these awesome places to stay in the mountains.

Bass Lake Trail
Blowing Rock

Bass Lake Trail is an awesome hike near Blowing Rock and Boone. It is a really easy loop (0.8 miles), though there are longer options including The Maze (3 miles). The loop is wheelchair-accessible and good for strollers, which is great for travel-with-baby people like us.

Like to fish? This place has that available, so don’t forget your poles!

If you’re staying at Chetola Resort, you can reach this hike via trail from our favorite High Country getaway!

Boone Fork Trail
Watauga County

Boone Fork Trail is a 5-mile loop that crosses its namesake river more than a few times. It’ll take you through diverse terrains, with flower patches, foliage, and swimming holes scattered along the way.

The Broad River Greenway

Cleveland County

The Broad River Greenway’s 1,500 acres of nature run along both sides of the water that passes through Cleveland County.

The First Broad River Trail in Shelby is one of the best in the system. It’s a 1.5-mile moderate walk that takes you along the slowly drifting water. It runs under a massive and historic wooden railroad trestle. But first, you have to cross a beautiful 120-foot suspension bridge.

Explore this greenway during any weekend in Cleveland County and enjoy one of our favorite spots in the state. It’s also part of the Carolina Thread Trail that connects 15 counties in North and South Carolina.
