With the gorgeous fall foliage covering your path, you can be sure to enjoy your hike with the crunch of leaves beneath your toes. With so many local hiking trails to choose from, we felt it was necessary to give you a list of some of our favorites:

Rand’s View

Striving for even more of a challenge? Rand’s View will take about four hours to complete. With a spacious view of the local meadow and a portion of the Appalachian Trail, this 5.3-mile hike is great for someone who is looking to break a sweat!

Breakneck Ridge

Without a doubt, this incredibly steep hiking trail will have you perspiring! Ranked 10 out of 10 for difficulty level, this scenic trail is well worth the effort, as your four-hour journey will end with mind-blowing views!
