Laurel River Trail Pisgah National Found on Hwy 25 not far from Marshall and Burnsville NC. This is a seven mile hike round trip. It is rated easy, but still wear good walking shoes, there are plenty of rocks and roots to trip over. This is my favourite walk. You have a view of the river almost the entire time. The river changes and you never run out of photographic opportunities. Most of the time, we just walk for a while then turn around. The very end is rather anti-climatic , not as beautiful as the journey.

Nolichucky River: A long river that snakes its way from North Carolina, through our county and finishes at the French Broad River. Exciting areas of rapids and rough water, long stretches of smooth serene water, this is a beautiful and adventurous way to spend a few hours or all day.
