  • If the road is open during winter go check this place out!!! Beautiful 360° views!! Today it was clear, but windy and cold! Visitor center was closed due to the off season, but portable toilets are available. You can hike up above the parking lot if you want an even better view! Hope you enjoy my drone shots!!
  • Nice short hike with great views on top. Definitely worth the drive from downtown Asheville.
  • Great hike with good views on a clear day. Restrooms and great parking.

Where to stay in Asheville

To take advantage of the best Asheville has to offer without breaking the bank, stay at one of the city's small motels, many of which offer free breakfast buffets and plenty of secure parking. Asheville's historical district contains most of the city's bed and breakfasts, allowing you to stay within a short walk of downtown shopping, dining, and entertainment. The area also boasts numerous budget-friendly hostels, offering inexpensive private rooms for backpackers. For something completely different, rent an eco-friendly cabin in a wooded area just a short drive from the city.
