How About Some Special Asheville Area Hiking

Often times, when we’re choosing a new place to live like the Asheville area we get caught up in the school system, the nearby medical facilities, and the overall quality of life. Don’t get us wrong; all of that is relevant. We also value the outdoor opportunities, however, and we think this new list of Marmot’s top ten Asheville hikes is a keeper.

Asheville Area HikesHiking is something many of us here at Greybeard Realty enjoy, and we offer some hiking spots on the Greybeard Rentals activities website. What is great about this list, however, is that it covers places a little further distance from town. So yes, you can learn about Crabtree Falls and Old Mitchell Trail, but you also can read up on Waterrock Knob, located 33.7 miles from downtown Asheville. See, that’s what’s great about this new listing. First of all, it tells you exactly how far most of the hikes are from Asheville, how difficult the hike is, and why the site is significant. And secondly, it offers some hikes that are a bit further out from town. In fact, through the article you can access a “bucket list” of Asheville hikes that has more than 25 locations within 100 miles of an Asheville home. This list is possibly more helpful to people who live in the area than people who have already travelled for an Asheville vacation and want something closer to town.

Greybeard staff and Realtors spend lots of time enjoying the remarkable outdoor offerings in the Asheville area. We hike, bike, ultra-marathon, and whitewater raft, among other activities. To us, the Asheville area is unmatched in its possible outdoor pastimes.  It’s why we love living here, and why we think you would too. Take a look at Greybeard's western NC residential listings and contact us to go check out a few homes. It’s just the beginning of your mountain adventures.
