The One Place In North Carolina That Looks Like Something From Middle Earth

As a Lord of the Rings fan, I must say, going to New Zealand and seeing the filming locations has always been on my bucket list. But even if the extravagant travel is out of my range for the next year or so, in North Carolina, there’s one place where you can have your own Middle Earth experience. Luckily, there’s no endpoint with throwing ‘the one ring to rule them all’ into the fiery pits of Mordor; there’s just sheer beauty that is simply out of this world.

If you’re a Lord of the Rings fan, you’ll appreciate this journey! Have you been to Roan Mountain before? Are there any other places that remind you of Middle Earth in North Carolina?

If you’re looking for more information on Roan Mountain, and the hikes available, read our full guide here!
