A Mysterious Woodland Trail In North Carolina Will Take You To The Original Rattlesnake Lodge Ruins
North Carolina is home to quite a number of ghost towns found deep in the woods and only accessible by way of a trail cut through the forest. One of the most fascinating ruins you’ll encounter trail side in the Tar Heel State is that of the old Rattlesnake Lodge, near Weaverville and Bull Gap. Built in 1903 as a summer house for the Chase P. Ambler family, Rattlesnake Lodge was then – and still is – accessible by a narrow, 3.7-mile loop trail through the wilderness.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
