Winter in the High Country

This beautiful time of year where the trees are frosted in white and the mountains are often covered in a blanket of snow the High Country is one of the most beautiful places to visit. The winter views are breathtaking and can be seen on a scenic drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway or from the top of Grandfather Mountain. Make memories that will last a lifetime as you experience our local ski mountains, hiking trails, and community during this magical time.

Winter is a great time to sit by a nice warm fire with some hot chocolate surrounded by friends and family. Plan ahead and reserve a cabin for your winter getaway in the picturesque Seven Devils.

For a weekend full of fun, for everyone in the family don't forget about Hawksnest zipline tours! Please call Hawksnest about setting up a tubing or zipline appointment! You can find their contact information at the link above or in our business directory.

Now’s the time to plan! There is great shopping and diverse restaurants surrounding Sevens Devils. Start as close as  Tynecastle shopping and dining district at the junction of NC 105/184.

Nearly a mile high, the Town of Seven Devils is known for crisp mountain air and Carolina blue skies, dramatic views of nearby Grandfather Mountain, and the pointed peak of Hanging Rock that towers over town. Come to Seven Devils to experience the beauty of Winter!

Nature is as close as a hike on Seven Devils’ trail to Otter Falls, now featuring newly added trails. Easy and high adventure hikes surround Seven Devils—check out a recent Our State magazine article for more options. Take a drive or a day hike on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Climb Grandfather mountain by car—or hike the famous Profile Trail—both are minutes away, with amazing views. Gaze at the view from the deck of your cozy Seven Devils cabin or condo, or head to the valley below to toast the scenery at Grandfather Vineyard. All are great destinations in any season!

However you choose to enjoy this season in Seven Devils, this town renowned for its spooky name is a short drive from all of the High Country’s resort towns, restaurants, nightspots, shops, and galleries.
