Hike a section of the famous Appalachian Trail on top of Max Patch near Hot Springs. This 4,600-foot mountain was cleared and used as a pasture in the 1800’s. Today, it’s a 350-acre tract of open land on a high knob with 360-degree views. On a clear day, you can see from Mount Mitchell on the east to the great Smokey Mountains to the south. The parking area is near the summit so you can do a short 1.4-mile loop to enjoy the views on top. Or you can do a longer loop and head north or south on the Appalachian Trail.

Dupont State Forest
Forty miles, south west of Asheville near Brevard, our top pick is a 3-mile roundtrip, easy hike to three beautiful waterfalls. On this hike, you will visit up to 5 of the 6 major waterfalls in Dupont State Forest. It starts as an easy path to some of the most specular waterfalls in the area: Hooker, Triple, and High Falls.
Covered picnic shelters with views of the falls make for excellent family outing possibilities. If you wish to continue to Grassy Creek or Bridal Veil Falls, this will become a more moderate hike. You will cross the big covered bridge and pass a beautiful mountain lake on the way. Well worth the extra effort.

Where To Drink
Asheville Beer, Cider, Cocktails, and Wine Bars
Wicked Weed Brewery
The outdoor fireplaces and inviting bar/restaurant make this brewery super cozy any time of year. The fun and casual vibe means the place will likely be packed at peak times. They don’t take reservations, but you can always wait for a table downstairs at the beer bar.
Tom Selleck and Sloth will greet you when you enter Burial Brewery.. Why? Because they are cool (there words, not mine – but true). This is a very unique spot with a great outdoor space, and they have a wide selection of quality brews for any eclectic taste.
New Belgium Brewery
You can’t beat the river view location at New Belgium. They have indoor and outdoor patio seating, as well as a fire pit under string lights (what could be better). They offer a free 90-minute brewery tour as well as multiple samples along the way. If you get hungry, they always have a couple food trucks to grab a bite from.
Sierra Nevada Brewery
This is the holy grail of breweries. If you only make it to one brewery, make it to this one. You won’t be sorry. The building, grounds, food and beer are all absolutely amazing. It is conveniently located near the airport and off route 26 so you really have no excuse not to go!
The Funkatorium Brewery
If you have a craving for sour beers, you must stop at the Funkatorium. Not a sour fan? They have a creative stout list too… including the hop cocoa – yum! Ample indoor and outdoor space, and live music make the atmosphere one you don’t want to miss.
This place is every instagramer’s dream. The décor has a definite bougie, secret garden feel. The bouncy beats, beautifully crafted cocktails and sharable plates make this place super unique. If you need a good craft cocktail to the face, Sovereign Remedies should be your #1 choice.
Noble Cider – The Green House
This is a hidden tropical paradise in the mountains. Industrial chic exposed beams meets Florida greenhouse with a bubble gum twist. Noble doesn’t disappoint with their selection of fun and fruity ciders – get a few flights to share with the table. Hungry? You won’t be disappointed by the culinary creations from Michelin star trained chef Gavin Baker.
This cozy gem is a secret treasure in Asheville. The atmosphere is charming but trendy. The owner, Melissa is super knowledgeable, friendly and knows how to deliver exceptional customer service. They have small bites and a charcuterie board with homemade cheeses – can never go wrong there! Oh yeah, and did I mention mimosa flights?
Unobstructed, west facing views of the Blue Ridge mountains means that the Montford is the perfect place to view the sunset year-round. The outside patio is the ideal spot to take in the views but get there early to secure a spot – this place gets packed (and for good reason). They offer a small plates and shareable larger meals. The flat bread is my go-to.
Ben’s Tune Up
This truly unique South Slope brewery doubles as a sake distillery as well. Not a fan of sake? With flavors like blueberry lime, orange creamsicle and pineapple jalapeno, you are bound to fund one you enjoy. If not, they have a full bar and an Asian fusion food menu. The back outdoor space boasts a chill vibe, with string lights and lanterns. And don’t miss reggae night on Sunday’s.
The rainbow mural outside of High Wire really catches your eye when you enter the brewery. The inside has more of an industrial feel with high ceilings, an open taproom and a good amount of seating. They have all sorts of board games to keep you entertained, as well as corn hole and pinball. This brewery does a great job of covering a wide variety of styles and types of beer. It is the perfect place to catch up with friends in a relaxed atmosphere.
If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle and crowds in downtown Asheville, this is a great spot. The entry is somewhat hard to find and covered in ivy. The grounds are vast with a ton of green space and the Swannanoa river runs along the property. The woodworking and craftsmanship of the pine log bar and tables are not only impressive but warm and inviting. If you want to visit the secret garden of breweries this should be a mandatory stop!
Where To Eat
Asheville Bachelorette Restaurants & Dining
This restaurant has been listed in publications like GQ and New York magazine for its innovative, fun and downright delicious Indian “street food.” The “chaat” sections offers brightly flavored small plates which are perfect to share with the table. My go to is the chicken tikka roll or the butter chicken. From the moment you walk through the door your senses are seduced by all the enticing aromas. Chai Panis is 100% worth the hype.
Sunny Point Café
Sunny Point Café is a local favorite and for good reason. With southern breakfast dishes like huevos rancheros, chicken & waffles and shrimp & grits you will not find a time when this place isn’t busy. While you wait, grab a coffee or mimosa and chill on the patio or stroll through their fruit and vegetable garden. The maple black pepper bacon is life changing, your mouth will thank you.
Foothills Butcher Bar
This butcher bar not only offers fresh, quality meats but also casual dining and bar for eating in or taking out. The hamburger is the best in town, simple, yet tasty. Other items on the menu include poutine, mac and cheese, salads and a house made hotdog. Grab some burgers and dogs to go and enjoy them after a hike or while floating the French Broad.
Gan Shan Station
You won’t find any generic Chinese takeout options on Gan Shan’s menu. The eclectic and innovative menu offers interesting twists on more typical flavors. A few of my favorites include house made dumplings, dan dan brussel sprouts, red curry short ribs and the drunken noodles. They have two locations with different menus, so check out each to see what one looks better to you!
Buxton Hall BBQ
There are so many things I love about Buxton Hall BBQ. The location is right downtown close to a bunch of breweries, which is perfect if you want to grab lunch before, after, or during your brewery crawl. The building is an old warehouse that they turned into a huge open space dining area with an industrial chic vibe. The fried chicken sandwich is the best in town. They are always super busy but don’t worry, you can always place a togo order and eat it next door at Catawba Brewing.
The cuisine at Nine Mile is Caribbean inspired. What does that mean, you may ask? Well, think a lot of jerk spices, coconut milk creamy sauces and all-around flavor explosions. They are vegetarian friendly, and each dish is cooked in its own pan allowing for all the substitutions and add-ons your heart desires. The portions are large so you will likely go home with a doggy bag.
Benne on Eagle
Esquire magazine named this place one of the top five new restaurants in America. You really get more than a meal here; you get an experience. The servers are extremely knowledgeable and informative not only about the menu but the history of African American cuisine. Modern, southern soul food items like deviled egg spread, collard green & apple salad, pork ribs and steak and gravy create a gold star dining experience you won’t forgot.
This place and menu are all about celebrating authentic Spanish cuisine which means – tapas! The restaurant itself has a modern, chic, cozy, eclectic feel. I would highly recommend making a reservation in advance, but walk-ins are welcome at the bar (if you are lucky enough to snag a spot.) You can’t go wrong with any of the tapas listed on the menu but a few of my favorites are the patatas bravas, canelones de carne and the pincho moruno. The service, food and atmosphere are all superb.
The Golden Fleece
This hidden gem is tucked away near the shops/museums near the Grove Park Inn. The ambience is a more quiet and intimate dining scene as opposed to the downtown vibe. They have an amazing outside garden area for dining during the warmer months. A few must try items from the menu are the fried cheese, ancient grain salad, mushroom risotto, roasted chicken and wood fired octopus. The Golden Fleece is certainly a favorite amongst the local foodies.
With accolades from The New York Times, Food & Wine and USA Today this is one breakfast joint you don’t want to miss. This is the perfect hippy place to fill all your biscuit desires and did I tell you they have a jam bar! They offer a bunch of beverages including a maple bacon latte, sake bloody mary and of course mimosas. Disclaimer – the line is usually out the door during peak times BUT it moves very fast.
