I believe in miracles, happy endings, magic, and hope. I believe people are better than they think they are. I believe it’s worth risking your ass for someone or something else for no other reason than it’s the right thing to do – even when it’s not convenient. I believe asking for help is one of the hardest things I’ll never master. I believe in good, in positivity, in happiness in dark places, and I believe in better days. Everyday. . . . Lovely weekend in the clouds with my ride or die @k_woods10 at Craggy Gardens.

While hiking there, visitors can discover long-range views, twisting trees, and fields overflowing with wonderful flowers. One of the coolest places people love and talk about is walking through the mysterious pathways of the misty tree tunnels.

The hiking pathway difficulty has been identified as moderate with a total distance of about 1.4 miles roundtrip, according to Romantic Asheville. It is free to visit and there is free parking at Milepost 364 on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

To access the Craggy Pinnacle trail, visitors need to pass the Visitor Center at the north of Blue Ridge Parkway and park at the Craggy Dome parking lot. You’ll start the trail going through a thick forest with rare plants and giant trees everywhere.

As you make your way through the forest you’ll soon reach an overlook that gives you a panoramic view of rocky mountains. Once you reach the summit, visitors will have unbeatable mountain views of the Pisgah National Forest.
