Skyline Trail

Skyline Trail

For those with an adventurous spirit and a willingness to explore, this trail is 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 backcountry, you’ll cross Falls Creek, the tributary of the 404-foot Hickory Nut Falls. The upper headwaters of the Falls and a breathtaking overlook of the Gorge are just ahead. Be sure to bring plenty of water and a snack with you, as this moderately strenuous expedition is about 2.2 miles round trip and can take about 2 – 2.5 hours.
