For those who enjoy an active vacation, Ashe County and the High Country have it all. The North Carolina Mountains are famous for miles of off-road Horse Back Riding Trails, Mountain Bike Trails, and hearty Road Cycling as featured in our Brutal 100 annual bicycle event. The Appalachian Trail, Virginia Creeper Trail, and area State Parks are just a few of the many great destination spots for outdoor fun.

Learn about the best spots to go Fly Fishing and catch a trout, or to float the New River in a Canoe, Kayak or Inner Tube. With the historic New River meandering throughout Ashe County, you'll find water adventure around every mountain curve.

Or if it's relaxation you're after, why not sit out on the deck of a NC Vacation Rental Cabin and enjoy the long range vistas, or take a leisurely drive on our back roads and enjoy the many spectacular summit views from the Blue Ridge Parkway.
