HIKING


The mountains of Western North Carolina prove to be a haven for outdoor recreation lovers.  Whether you are on the moderate trails of Linville Ridge, the Beacon Heights Trail on the Blue Ridge Parkway, the strenuous Grassy Ridge on Roan Mountain, or neighboring Grandfather Mountain State Park’s ridgeline, fall in love with the nature that surrounds.  

Linville Ridge is home to two hiking trails; located on the lower and upper mountain. The lower trail starts from the Belvedere to Highway 184 security gate and stretches 2.52 miles, while the upper trail starts from Linville Ridge’s Helipad to Forest Court entrance and stretches 1.8 miles.   

Members can also enjoy the cool, crisp air while exploring the mountains by foot with the Hiking Club.  This club offers you a chance to conquer a challenging summit twice a month. Explore moderate to strenuous hikes and miles of trails on a mountain with the group on a Thursday or for our weekend members, on a glorious Saturday morning.

What a nice feeling when you walk into the club and every employee from the Director of Golf to the bag boy addresses you with not only your name but a smile on their face. It just starts the day off with a bang, and it keeps getting better after that. – Mary Lester
