Map to Asheville Area Attractions
* The Brevard Road entrance to the BRP indicated here is our favorite access point when heading southbound to Graveyard Fields (for wild blueberry picking and waterfall hiking) and Cradle of Forestry (lots of easily accessible waterfalls). If your plans are to head north from Asheville to visit Craggy Gardens and Mt. Mitchell (highest point in the US east of the Mississippi), we suggest using the BRP entrance at the end of I-240 just east of Asheville. It just so happens that each of these two BRP access points is a 16 mile drive from our BnB.
