Haw Creek Overlook Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Just off the Blue Ridge Parkway, this out-and-back Mountains to Sea Trail (MST) section hike starts at the Folk Art Center, which serves as a convenient and easily accessible trailhead. From the Folk Art Center, you will follow the MST east and steadily uphill. The reward for hiking up the ascent is a rock overlook with beautiful views of Haw Creek Valley, Town Mountain, and East Asheville—and a downhill trek back to the trailhead.

To begin the hike, locate the informational kiosk in front of the Folk Art Center. At the kiosk you will leave the paved sidewalk and walk north on a granular path. This path is part of a short nature walk that surrounds the Folk Art Center and coincides with the MST."
