About the hikes:
All of these trails are a 30-minute drive from our chalet.

Spy Rock- 5-mile (round trip) steep trail to the top rewards hikers with a panoramic view of Appalachia. The fall colors should be at there peak when we get there.

Crabtree Falls- Said to be the highest falls in Appalachia the terraced trail is short 3.5 (round trip) miles but quite steep and challenging.


White Rock Falls-2.5 mile (round trip) to lower falls with a spur trail to the top and terraced falls below.
