Asheville is nestled in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains and is connected to the Blue Ridge Parkway at several points within the Asheville area.
Craggy Gardens is our most popular hiking destination for elopements! Within a quick drive from downtown Asheville, you can be surrounded by 360° views of the Blue Ridge Mountains along the slow-paced and relaxing Blue Ridge Parkway, revealing stunning long-range vistas and close-up views of the rugged mountains and pastoral landscapes of the Appalachian Highlands.
During late spring and into summer, Craggy Gardens is bustling with color with the rhododendrons in bloom. During summer, cool off due to the 10-15°F cooler temperatures experienced in downtown Asheville. Fall colors start a bit sooner in late September at Craggy Gardens, so you can get a start on our peak wedding season in Appalachia!
