The Cherokee Indians inhabited the Blue Ridge and surrounding mountain region for over 10,000 years before the first European explorers arrived looking for gold and glory. They searched in vain and left disappointed without realizing the real wealth of the mountains isn’t buried in the ground, but visible for all to see in the natural beauty of the great outdoors.
Winding rivers, protected forests and tree-topped mountains are cherished natural treasures and a paradise for outdoor adventurers.
Streams are swimming with trout, lakes are full of game fish and whitewater rivers are a playground for rafters and kayakers wanting to add a refreshing adventure to a family vacation.
For hikers, bikers and horseback riders, there are thousands of miles of scenic mountain trails and meandering country roads, more than you could cover in a lifetime.
Fertile valleys and rolling foothills are laced with lush fairways, sprawling bent grass greens and natural hazards, making mountain golf an interesting and challenging experience for golfers of every skill level.
The outdoor opportunities are endless in the Blue Ridge Mountains. With the gentle four-season climate, adventures are enjoyed year-round. Come and experience Blue Ridge Outdoors!
