  • Beautiful place, definitely stop here and take the short hike up and have a picnic with spectacular views.
  • Completely breathtaking! Must do the 1.4-mile roundtrip hike to the top of the Craggy Pinnacle, while at the Gardens. There you'll find stunning panoramic 360-degree views from an 5,890 ft summit... hard to beat in the Western NC Blue Ridge.
