Outdoor Recreation

Year-round activities abound in the High Country- hiking, canoeing or boating, mountain biking, road cycling, ziplining, rock climbing and bouldering – are just a few adventures visitors of all ages can enjoy! Paddling and hiking in the summer are wonderful,as you explore the scenery and enjoy some of the most pleasantly mild weather in the SE United States. Whether you’re camping for a weekend, or just enjoying a quick stroll along a leg-stretching trail on the Blue Ridge Parkway, it is hard to imagine a better way to experience this glorious mountain region than immersing yourself in outdoor activities. Don’t forget to bring your camera to capture quick pictures of wildlife along the trail and expansive vistas from the mountaintops.
