Our Latest

Our latest hike was the Rough Ridge Trail. Located off the Blue Ridge Parkway, north of the Linn Cove Viaducts. The trail head is easy to reach and the parking area is decent. We would suggest being in reasonable shape to perform the hike. The altitude is high for some and the trail is not paved so expect roots, rock and mud (That’s why it is called a trail and not a walk in the park). The hike is worth it. You will be rewarded with some of the most wonderful views on the parkway and when you reach the peak it feels like you are standing on top of the world.
