Hiking & Sightseeing
One of the newest State Parks in the mountains and thus far not overly crowded. The Park offers a 4 mile round trip hike to the "Summit" where the long range views are superb. Elk Knob State Park features one of the highest peaks in North Carolina's High Country at 5,520 feet.

This area is extremely popular with Cyclists and Fly Fishing enthusiasts. Be sure to make it all the way down to "Betsey's Ole Country Store" for a hot dog. If you're going by car, it will take about 30 minutes (dirt/gravel road) to get to Betsey's, a place that "those in the know" haven't forgotten.

Often visitors only explore the Blue Ridge Parkway from Blowing Rock to Linville. Just as scenic, if not more, and less traffic is to jump on the Parkway at Blowing Rock and head north towards the Virginia line. Download the Blue Ridge Parkway mobile app for helpful sight-seeing tips on this portion of the Parkway.
