The Hiking Trail Hiding In North Carolina That Will Transport You To Another World

Hiding right on the North Carolina/Tennessee border is one of the most unique hiking trails in the state with mountain aesthetics you won’t find elsewhere in the Blue Ridge. Large, open fields expand across the tops of mountains lending a new experience and perspective while first, a dense hiking trail filled with trees and dangling cliffs is required to accomplish such a coveted view. If you’re seeking a one-of-a-kind hike this summer, Roan Mountain is the place to do it.
