Today we hike the Max Patch trail. It is a part of the Appalachian Trail and the Pisgah National Forest, both are major attractions for outdoorsy folks visiting or living in WNC. Depending on the path you choose at Max Patch, the moderate hike is no more than 2.5 miles.
Wander through the golden fields. Happen upon the enchanted forest for some shady downtime.
Pack a picnic. Bring your pooch. Don't forget the water.
Then say hello to the Blue Ridge Mountains.
