8 Short And Sweet Fall Hikes In North Carolina With A Spectacular End View

Fall is the perfect time to take a hike. Perfect temperatures and stunning foliage transform the lush greenery to a wonderland of deep reds, bursting orange and golden yellows. While many of us would love to pack our bags and escape into the wilderness for a day or two, sometimes our only option is a brisk day hike. Luckily, North Carolina has plenty of awesome, easy-to-moderate hikes that allow you to enjoy the journey.
