We had a little time to kill on our way to Asheville, NC and we were interested in the swinging bridge so we visited Foxfire Mountain. It was really cool to walk on the bridge. We watched various people zipline high over the trees (if we had more time we would have tried that.) One thing I really liked was... More

Loved the relaxation after the Zip Line Adventure, we just wish the water wasn't so low, but by no means was this the fault of Foxfire

The bridge itself is not nearly as long as pictures show it to be. But it's a very nice bridge and fun to walk across and take pictures. On the side of the bridge that you enter in, there's a neat little garden with a wishing well and a covered little building where you can pick up papers to write... More

Me and my wife hiked both trails, one goes up the mountain to the falls [ a great place to cool off ] and the other is the river bank walk which goes by a pasture with lamas and a Bull with horns as big around as i've ever seen. The trail also goes through a little obstacle course that... More
