Black Balsam Knob
This is a magical place which can get crowded quickly. If you can venture up for a sunrise hike you may get some space to yourself ;). It takes about an hours drive to get up there with lots of beautiful scenery along the way.
Ridgeline hike with incredible views - our #1 recommendation for visitors. Includes scenic drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway - about 50min from Airbnb.
“This place is off Main St in downtown. There is also a pub attached to the restaurant if you'd like to unwind before dinner.”
“Don't forget to visit WAYNESVILLE'S MAIN STREET (10.7 miles) which features: Local restaurants (Birchwood Hall Southern Kitchen, Bogart’s Restaurant & Tavern, El Pobre Mexican Restaurant, Firefly Taps & Grill, Ian & Jo Jo’s Pizzeria & Restaurant, J-Ro’s Burgers & Subs, Kandi’s Cakes & Bake Shop, Kanini’s Restaurant & Catering, Kornerstone Kafe, Sauced, Smoky Mountain Sub Shop, Watami Sushi & Noodles), breweries (Boojum Brewing Company), various shops, festivals, rich art culture”
