High Meadow Trail
This easy1.35-mile-long leg stretcher will take you through a hayfield and a wetland with an abundance of wildflowers and birds. It also winds through a forest with rich displays of rhododendron, ferns, and rock outcrops. Two junctions for the Fisher Peak Loop join this trail. You may turn onto the loop trail, follow the High Meadow Trail to visit the Music Center’s Visitor Center, or return to the trailhead from these points. (TRACK trail)
Fisher Peak Loop
This moderate 2.24 mile trail begins at one of its junctions with the High Meadow Trail. It winds up the side of Fisher Peak through a variety of vegetation. At the lower elevation, the trail follows a stream through mixed pine and hardwoods. Higher up, the blooms of azaleas, mountain laurel and Catawba rhododendron provide a spectacular display in May. They give way to a diverse second growth forest of oak, poplar, maple and sourwood trees. Look for abundant signs of animal life, such as woodpecker holes, deer tracks, and turkey dust baths.
