Weekend Picks South: Hike Hawksbill Mountain in the Linville Gorge Wilderness

get more from BRO

Warmer weather is coming to WNC this week and if the forecasts hold true it should continue into the weekend. Even the notoriously sketchy weather in the Linville Gorge looks like it might cooperate. The Gorge is arguably one of the most stunning landscapes in all of Western North Carolina. If you’ve never been, use the summit of Hawksbill as an intro to all the gorge has to offer. The unique summit can be seen throughout much of the North Carolina High Country, and the route to the top is relatively easy compared to some of the other hikes in the area.
