Black Balsam Knob
HIKING - Black Balsam is a bald mountain ridge with 360 degree views. Budget an hour drive taking you past Asheville and onto the Blue Ridge Parkway. It’s an Asheville favorite. You can also see the Graveyards Fields (which sit right below Black Balsam).
Nice short hike with beautiful views on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Go early - parking gets full.
Best hike in the area. 360 views from the top. Hike is easy to moderate, and only about a mile before you see the best views of the Smokies and Blue Ridge.
A “must do” hike located in Pisgah National Forest and off the Blue Ridge Parkway. Moderate 2-5 mile round trip hike.
About an hour and half away. Awesome views! This is part of the Art Loeb Trail.
