There are so many beautiful waterfalls in the mountains of Western North Carolina! Me and Dad love having waterfall adventures here:
Hooker Falls - this has been our go-to waterfall for many years. A short hike and lot of fun. There is also a place where you can go behind the waterfall and a place where you can jump off of the waterfall, but not recommended.
There are many great places to go cycling in the mountains of Western North Carolina! We love biking around the mountains. Here are some great spots;
Lake Powhatan - this lake is surrounded by a biking trail but part of it is through the woods so you need to walk it first to get familiar with the terrain. There are also many other dirt trails going up in the woods, but requires more experience.
Carrier Park - this is a great place to bike around the track and it also connect to the greenway!
Bent Creek - there are many biking trails along this creek, but always be careful and wear your safety gear.
