CoachBreathtaking, peaceful views that will restore your sanity after a long week. There are so many hikes around the area that you can enjoy, some long and some very short. If you’re entering the actual park, don’t forget to hike or drive to the top and cross the swinging bridge.

It’s long so you may not be around this area, but if you happen to be in Blowing Rock or Boone, it’s worth making a trip to the Linn Cove Viaduct on the parkway. It feels like you’re flying as you drive across. Near the viaduct there is also one of the best quick hikes named Rough Ridge.
