What to Expect on Your Asheville Hiking Trip
We designed this trip all around what it means to live in the mountains during the summer: swimming holes and beer! We start this trip in the mid morning, after the day has had a chance to get nice and warm. We will drive out of town on the spectacular Blue Ridge Parkway to one of the most incredible swimming holes in the area. We will have a short hike to this top secret swimming hole that is known by few. The seclusion of this spot allows us plenty of quiet space to spread out and take in the cool mountain water under the hot sun. Once we have finished baking on the warm rocks along the bank, we will take the short and scenic hike back to our transportation. After winding through the Blue Ridge Parkway one last time, we will conclude at New Belgium Brewery, located right along the banks of the French Broad River where we can soak up the eclectic River Arts district and round out the perfect Asheville day with a beer.
