As long as you like the outdoors you will like North Carolina. Put on your hiking shoes and hit the trail, Yancey Ridge Trail in Avery County, North Carolina is just what you need. In the Blue Ridge Mountains there
    are many great hiking trails where you can absorb the beauty of these mountains.
A long drive separates Boone from Yancey Ridge Trail, but hiking is such a fun thing to do and this is a great place to do that. Why not stop by
nearby Crusher Branch if you're here at Yancey Ridge Trail. If you came for an overnight stay Down By The River Campground is a tremendous place to camp; at Yancey Ridge Trail you always meet someone from Collettsville. Daniel Boone Family Campground is a delightful local campground, and Lake James State Park is a perfect site to have a look at. Whitewater paddling is not for everybody but if it's for you then we recommend Gragg Prong River. It's a fine idea  
to visit Laurel Mountain Branch, it's near Yancey Ridge Trail, and there's whitewater on Wilson Creek for all you adrenaline rush seekers. What a place this is for outdoors people. Through the warm months at Yancey Ridge Trail temperatures are generally in the 70's.
