Another great trip out to the wilderness! On this day, the pup and I took a few friends out to explore the Linville Falls and Gorge. What I love about this area, there's tons to see and places to explore. Using the Blue Ridge Parkway and Memorial Highway as a driving loop provides awesome views of the gorge, Hawksbill, Tablerock and The Chimneys as well as multiple trail heads down to the gorge and vistas to gaze upon the beauty from. Plus, there are about a dozen car camping spots along Memorial Highway. A highly recommended trip, the Linville Falls and Gorge is one of North Carolina's best hiking environments and a must see for all good explorers in the area!

Impression: This is one of my favorite hiking areas. Linville Gorge Wilderness provides an amazing adventure area with tons of camping, rugged trails and incredible views. While the Hawksbill portion of the hike is fairly easy, the loop through the gorge is very difficult...
