Asheville Trails Professional Review and Guide
"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."
