For those with an adventurous spirit and the willingness to explore, this trail’s for you. The Skyline trail starts at Exclamation Point and meanders through the woods where you’ll encounter ridgetop forests, sheer cliffs and an incredible view of Lake Lure
from Peregrine’s Point. As you continue further into the back country, you’ll cross Falls Creek, the headwaters of 404-foot Hickory Nut Falls. The upper cascades of the Falls and a breathtaking vista of the Gorge are just ahead. Be sure to take plenty of water and a snack with you.
