    First time customer. We went for me and my husband’s 15th year wedding anniversary. Overall very knowledgeable, nice experience. We purchased the “big daddy “ 70$ bucket and I made a jasper, tigers eye pendant. That I can’t wait to receive. We also purchased two smooth stones for our teen boys who stayed at home, while we had all the fun ;)

    Always a good spot if your looking for a local bar. Watched the game and the atmosphere was lovely and friendly. Clean, single bathrooms and good selection of local drinks. Pet friendly, food truck was great.

    Well maintained and very pleasant. Walk and run with the locals. Parking is behind the Community Center and gives easy access to the trails. Mostly flat.

    What a fun place and great for families. We also had our dog with us and there were lots of other dogs there. Great outdoor areas under the tent for yummy snacks and beer. The wait was not too long for a table for dinner. The selection of beer is good and the food was very good. We all had different dinners and they were all good portions.

    Adjoining the Farmer’s Market we found the ‘Horn in the West’ Daniel Boone Amphitheater as well as the Hickory Ridge Living History Museum compound where Marrena Greer welcomed us to a guided tour of what life was like when the Western North Carolina high country was first being settled. Focused on the period of 1785 - 1805, the museum provides insight into the self-sufficiency of our forefathers by highlighting the skills they possessed such as hearth side cooking, spinning, candle making, and blacksmithing. Btw, ‘Horn in the West’ is celebrating its 70th season this summer!

    No windmills or circus gimmicks, but a challenging mix of uphill and downhill holes. Some of the other reviews here seem dated. As of our visit, things were clean and in good shape. There was a diverse clientele, and our six- and ten-year olds had a good time, as did we adults.

    New trails, fast trails - the crews are doing a wonderful job at maintaining the trail system - rode last year around this time - each time we come back it has improved - good job trail crew!!!! Green trails for beginners - double black for the experienced rider - beware there are some tricky lines, so if you don't have the skills - don't try them! You will get a great work out pedaling up the mountain!!

    We spotted lots of fresh, organic produce, locally farmed meats, eggs, breads and crafts and listen to the spirited sounds of a mountain band. WCFM is a 100% producer-only market.  
    Best bread ever from 'Between the Tress"!

    Our group had a really enjoyable time learning how to make fire with Tanner. He showed us 4 different ways to make a fire from nothing. He also shared a lot about nature, knives, and survival just in the process of teaching us that I never thought of before.

    I left feeling more prepared, closer to nature, and just really blessed that we were offered the opportunity to learn here.

    The location has a REALLY long and rough road to get in, so be aware of that. It's NATURE. Nature is rough. Once you get beyond that, you will love what is on offer.

    Some exhibits was more fascinating then others . Some seemed like just pieces of paper printed of printer, others cloth. So idk , and I’m a big art fan but I wasn’t too intrigued

    This garden has potential, but needs more care. Most of the plants were labelled, which is a plus. Many were just starting to bud out -- probably will be more beautiful in a few more weeks.

    It was not a big waterfall. We had some bad knees so we couldn't keep walking to get to the flat rocks that were by the waterfalls.
    It is not listed clearly as Laurel Creek Falls. You park on one side of the street & you have to guess that the waterfall is actually across the street & up the hill.
    I can see it as a great place for teens & under 50s to sit on some of the big rocks & just chill & enjoy each other's company, climb the rocks, and cool off in the water.
    I would not put it on your list to go to unless you fit the criteria. There are no bathrooms. Dogs are permitted but were on leases.

    Went during the Labor Day event it was awesome. They had a great crowd there and gave the kids rides in their race cars. And talked to the owners wife for a few minutes ,She was busy with everything, But I would to say they have a good staff working for them, very attentive to the drivers needs. The Stock 4 and stock 8 races were the best I have ever seen. You just have to go out there and check this place out. No drinking allowed I think that's great don't need it around kids, Well it a great place to take the whole family to watch good clean fun.
