Climb To The Top Of The Hollow Rock Trail In North Carolina For Amazing Views From High Above The Surrounding Terrain

If you want incredible views from the mountaintops in North Carolina, they are a dime a dozen (but still spectacular!) if you travel to the pure western part of the state. But there’s another spot in the Brushy Mountains long before you get to the Blue Ridge Parkway or the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

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
