Outdoor Activities In Asheville & Waynesville, NC

The outdoor activities in Haywood are too many to list. The foremost on your list should be a visit to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park which encompasses more than half a million acres. You can go hiking in this great park but you should not miss one of the elk spotting tours that are available here. They can often by spied grazing or socializing with other members of their herd. 

You should also try out the winter activities that take place here. You can experience seasonal skiing and snow tubing in Maggie Valley, located in Haywood County. Be careful though because the roads are often slippery because of the buildup of ice and are often closed because of the occasional snowfall.
