We recommend the Shope Creek trails only one mile from the cabin: turn left at the top of the cabin driveway, drive approximately 1.5 miles until the road ford’s a small creek, then park in the national forest parking lot.

For longer excursions, visit trails on the Blue Ridge Parkway such as Black Balsam, Sam Knob (pictured) or Craggy Gardens. Click here to access the nearby Appalachian Trail, the world’s longest hiking-only footpath.
