Asheville Trails Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Any hiker in North Carolina, especially a mountain-lover, eventually gets to hip, happenin’ Asheville. More Blue Ridge Parkway visitors enter and exit the road in Asheville than at any other place. The biggest attraction is the must-see Biltmore House and Gardens, George W. Vanderbilt’s 250-room summer place that is the United States’ largest home.

Beyond breathtaking gardens, interiors, and artwork, the estate has hiking, mountain biking, and kayaking. The fancy Inn on Biltmore Estate and the estate’s new Village Hotel, near Antler Hill Village and winery, are the perfect platforms for sampling Biltmore-raised foods, wines, hiking, biking and paddling."

I live in Asheville, and this is a very broad overview of several hiking areas.

The best part of the ride is the very beginning on Vanderbilt Rd in the town of Biltmore Forest. The homes are spectacular, roads in good condition, beautiful foliage, and no traffic. Coming out of Biltmore Forest and into downtown Asheville, the trail becomes dangerous, both traffic-wise and road condition wise. The sidewalks are cracked and not conducive to road bikes. I would suggest getting lost in the Biltmore Forest around Vanderbilt and enjoying the seclusive affluent neighborhood.
