3 Great Hiking Trails & Waterfalls In North Carolina Area

 Hello everyone! Hope you are having an amazing day. In today's post I'm going to share with you some of the best trails in the beautiful North Carolina Mountains to enjoy of the beautiful nature and views of this state. There's more than 900 miles of hiking trails link to you with adventures in the North Carolina mountains. 

Triple Falls Trail 

This hike scores views of all three waterfalls on a one-mile, kid-friendly, round trip adventure. The route explores DuPont State Recreational Forest, a beautiful, 10,000-acre playground that’s popular with hikers, mountain bikers, and runners, located just east of Brevard, NC. And while the waterfalls are the hike’s main attraction, there’s abundant natural beauty throughout the hike, too: the trail follows the scenic Little River, catching views of the glassy river as it flows over a grassy, bouldered bed.

2.7-mile loop trail near Hendersonville, North Carolina. Generally considered a moderately challenging route, it takes an average of 1h 11min to complete. This is a very popular area for hiking, running, and walking, so you'll likely encounter other people while exploring.

Hawksbill Mountain Trail

The Hawksbill Mountain Trail is a breathtaking trail that ascends to a rugged summit, providing a 360-degree view of Linville Gorge and Pisgah National Forest. The hike to the top of Hawksbill Mountain, which stands at an elevation of 4,009 ft, is incredibly rewarding as it offers panoramic views of the Linville Gorge "canyon," with the valley floor situated below you. On a clear day, you can even catch a glimpse of the Charlotte skyline! The short hike is strenuous, featuring a short climb. The trail to the Hawksbill summit begins at the parking area on an unpaved Pisgah National Forest service road. After hiking for about a half-mile, the summit trail turns left just before reaching the Jonas Ridge Trail. From here, the summit trail becomes increasingly rocky and, after hiking for 1/4 mile, reaches the ridge. Just before you reach the ridge, the hike splits. Either trail will take you to the top. The trail to the right is longer and more gradual. Go straight for a short, steep climb. At the top (which is a popular camping spot), go to the right for the best views or to the left for a better view of Table Rock.

Crabtree Falls Trail

3.4 miles distance out-and-back. This is a fairly steep trail with plenty of switchbacks.  However, most people will stop along the way to enjoy the falls, so it breaks up the pace. There are lots of pointy rocks along part of the trail, but there are some sections that are very nice. The view to the lower falls is even paved for wheelchair access. At the top of the falls, you get a decent view of the Tye River Valley.

This waterfall is the tallest along the Blue Ridge Parkway and it's a beautiful must see-while in this area. The trail has beautiful forest views .
