Description

Anyone who has oggled Joey Henson's beautiful drawings knows that Linville Gorge is riddled with bouldering. Unfortunately for the skinny-legged boulderers out there, most of it involves hiking and even some 'hiking.' For those willing to put in the effort you are rewarded with Linville's bomber quarzite in a lovely setting down by the Linville river.

Getting There

From Asheville, take I-40 east toward Marion, exiting at US 70 just west of Marion. Continue on 70 to exit on US 221 and head north to the small town of Linville Falls. At Linville Falls, turn right (east) on NC 183 and drive about four miles to NC 181; turn right again (south). After about 2.5 miles, make another right off 181 onto Gingercake Road (SR 1264) for a short distance, then take the left fork onto Table Rock Road (SR 1261); this changes to forest road 210 and becomes a gravel road. Continue for several miles to the Table Rock parking lot. From here, there is camping and trails leading to Table Rock and to various sections of Linville Gorge.
