The Unique Hike In North Carolina That Leads You To Plane Wreckage From 1978

Last month, we wrote about a Blue Ridge Parkway hike that leads to the wreckage of a plane crash from 1983, and then asked for information about other plane crashes in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Thanks to readers, we’re covering another crashed plane you can hike to from the Parkway, although this hike is a bit more challenging.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

Have you hiked to either of these two plane crash sites to view the wreckage yet? You’ll want to get a move on before the snow and ice hit the mountains of North Carolina!.
