Instead of seeing bears as the name might suggest, you will most likely see a lot of cows up here! That’s because Bearwallow Mountain is actually a working farm at 4,232 feet.
The trail that runs through Crabtree Falls is one of our absolute favorite hikes. Of course, the 70-foot waterfall is the highlight, and we highly suggest you arrive early.
Rough Ridge Trail is one of the busiest Blue Ridge Parkway hikes. It’s a quick hike to the first overlook (1/3 of a mile) and absolutely beautiful if you can get there for sunrise. You can keep going another half-mile to the summit, which stands at 4,773 ft.
