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 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.
