Craggy Gardens Trail

Black Mountain, NC 28711, USA
8 Kudos
Craggy Gardens is accessible on the Blue Ridge parkway near Ashville. Stop at the Craggy Gardens visitor centor for info.The trail is at the end of the parking lot. The views at the top are spectacular and the rhododendruns were beautiful. There are also other wild flowers. We accessed the Craggy Gardens trail from the Blue Ridge Parkway and parked at Bearpen Gap. There is plenty of parking and restrooms and lots of picnic tables. There are signs everywhere to not leave food out because of bears. The distance to the top of the trail is .8 miles and it is moderate. Once you get to the top, you will see a large shelter and then the field opens up. The views are breathtaking. I saw a couple taking wedding or engagement photos and it was the perfect backdrop. The hike was easy to do and you don't need any special gear. We just walked from the car and it was about 45 minutes round trip after stopping to enjoy the view
