Blue Ridge Music Center-Milepost 213.0 Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"One of the Parkway’s newest facilities, the Blue Ridge Music Center is dedicated to the stirring fusion of Irish, English, Scots-Irish, and African music and instruments that came together early in US history to create the nation’s traditional music.

Exhibits trace Appalachia’s early ballad- based music from the 1700s through the early twentieth century emergence of “hillbilly music,” then bluegrass, and on to commercial country music and the growing popularity of traditional mountain music. Two red-blazed trails explore the surrounding fields and forests. One offers an out- and- back walk through meadows and wetlands, the other a longer loop hike up to forested Fisher Peak (where there is a view). In 2013, the Piedmont Land Conservancy added an additional 550 acres to the center’s existing 1,700-acre natural area."
