The Hendersonville area of WNC (Western North Carolina) is FULL of beautiful trails. For many of us who are not used to walking in the mountains or hiking lengthy trails, there is still a way to enjoy the beautiful waterfalls and gorgeous scenery in our area.
I love to hike, but we have an 11 year old son, Will, with special needs that has difficulty with trails and sometimes has needed a stroller. Or other times, I'm with friends who are not used to hiking in the mountains and I want to bring them outdoors but not get overly tired.
I've put together my top three favorite hiking trails that are perfect for kids, beginner hikers, or just an afternoon in nature without feeling like you're climbing Mount Everest. I hope this can help you enjoy the outdoors even if you are not an avid hiker!
