The High Country is well known for its numerous hiking trails of all skill and age levels as well as its cycling and mountain biking. There is plenty of free hiking along the Blue Ridge Parkway, just note the mile marker numbers while planning your adventures, as well as excellent hiking on Grandfather Mountain and in certain communities that house our Blue Ridge Cabin Rentals. Many of our cabins are literally on hiking trails, so grab a bottle of water, lock your front door and start hiking! There are now two major NC Montain Biking Parks in the Boone area, Rocky Knob Bike Park and Kerr Scott Lake Trails. And the Blue Ridge Parkway is well-known for training some of the best cycling athletes in the world, including Lance Armstrong that called Boone the best place to train in the World!
