“Beautiful 360 Views of the Mountains”
Review of Max Patch

Reviewed 6 April 2018

Quick hike up to the top of Max Patch to absolutely stunning views of the mountains. You can see for miles in all directions. It can be pretty windy and chillier at the top, so dress accordingly. Great place to bring your dog and have a picnic. It's a long drive from Asheville through the country, but well worth it.

Max Patch is a great place to visit if you are in the mood for a long drive through the country. It is a little remote, but the views are worth it. Once you reach the top of Max Patch, you are rewarded with the best views around! You can see Tennessee and NC mountains and it is spectacular. You can also hike part of the Appalachian Trail if you are so inclined because it crosses Max Patch.

Great place to hike. Can see for miles. Great view driving there. We took one road in and another out. Both road were rough. Great fall colors.

The road in is rough, but worth it. Lovely 360 degree view from the top of the patch. Wear something warm and comfy shoes and take a camera!

Awesome views driving up the mountain. My little 4 cylinder Civic had no issues getting up the gravel and dirt roads. Once we fought the altitude and got to the top, the views were stunning.
