|Blue Ridge Parkway Travel
The Blue Ridge Parkway is one of the world's greatest scenic routes and for many people it is a destination all by itself. It winds its way across some of the highest peaks of eastern America in a leisurely fashion with views, wildlife, arts and crafts and historic sites all along the route. We've got special sections on Parkway History and a Mile by Mile Travelogue, as well as a terrific trail guide (trails accessable from the parkway) and some great archival photos courtesy of the BRP archives. Our Parkway pages are a great resource for folks travelling the Blue Ridge Parkway or just thinking about it.
Carolina's National Forests
To get away from it all in North Carolina head to one of our great National Forests. A remarkable variety of scenery and recreational activities await you.
to the Linville Gorge Wilderness Area.
One of the wildest spots in the east! The guide includes information about the gorge, a photo gallery, as well as camping and trail information.
and Butterfly Migrations
Talk about an adventure, how would you like to fly several thousand miles under your own power? Lots of critters do it every year. We've got the story on the winged ones and the best places to look for them.
and Other Obnoxious Plants
Ideally, you should check this page out BEFORE you go to the woods. Prevention is the best defense.

Mitchell and the Black Mountains
It's kind of hard to tell how high a mountain is when you're standing on it. Elisha Mitchell felt like the mountain that today bears his name was the highest in the east and he went out of his way to prove it... so far out of his way that it cost him his life.
Bartram's Travels in the Carolinas
A truly rare individual in his, or any other day, Bartram explored western areas of North Carolina in the 1770's. His poetic vision of the wonders of nature helped shape our appreciation of wilderness, as well as significantly increasing knowledge of the plants and people of the area.
