Spring in Avery County erupts with a blast of color in the High Country. Bluets, trout lilies and trillium cover the forest floor in splashes of blue, yellow and white, as the opening act for the coming flood of pink, purple and white rhododendron and mountain laurel. Summer is by far the most popular season for visitors to Avery County.
Experience hiking and camping on Grandfather Mountain, or a leisurely drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway. Water lovers can take advantage of a number of white water rafting outfitters, as well as the world-class fly-fishing in the local streams. Without a doubt,
Fall in the High Country can be summed up by two major attractions: spectacular leaf color and Woolly Worms.
Winter in Avery County means snow -Lots of it! Come experience skiing, sledding, snowboarding and tubing! With ski resorts like Ski Beech and Ski Sugar in the immediate area, Avery County has evolved into the premiere southern destination for winter sports.
It's advisable to check and see if the Blue Ridge Parkway is open before planning to travel that route in the wintertime. No snow clearing equipment or salt is used on the Parkway, it is simply closed in sections when there is snow or ice covering it. Call the Parkway hotline at 828-298-0398 for closing information.
