Asheville, NC: Yellow Face and Waterrock Knob

nc

Star Star Star Star Star

Distance: 2.9 miles


Conquer two 6,000-foot peaks in Pisgah National Forest on this 3-mile trek that straddles the Blue Ridge Parkway.
  • Views from the Blue Ridge Parkway
  • Waterrock Knob

This 3-mile, peak-bagging sampler offers a taste of the 6,000-foot peaks that can be climbed from the Waterrock Knob parking lot on the Blue Ridge Parkway. This two-peak route starts from the Waterrock Knob parking lot, which offers great views of the Blue Ridge Parkway to the east, and heads up the paved path (which soon turns to dirt) for a 450-foot climb to the parking lot's namesake summit.

From there, an optional route-finding hike to Plott Balsam continues east. Otherwise, enjoy above-the-trees-views of Pisgah National Forest before descending back down to the parking lot and crossing the Parkway to knock off another South Beyond 6,000 summit on a short, two-hump climb up to Yellow Face.
