The Easy Snowshoe Trail At Elk Knob State Park In North Carolina Is Ideal For A Bright And Snowy Winter’s Day

We’re gearing up for one of the wettest, and quite possibly the snowiest, winters in many years and for western North Carolina, particularly the High Country, this means more opportunities to enjoy winter recreation. When the snow begins to fly there is one North Carolina state park that’s ideal for cross country skiing and snowshoeing.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
