Craggy Gardens on the Blue Ridge Parkway Craggy Gardens 1.9 MILES, ROUND TRIP It’s one of our favorite hikes off the Blue Ridge Parkway in any season, but the bloom at Craggy is exceptionally beautiful. This hike follows the Craggy Gardens Trail, climbing through a rhododendron forest filled with deep pink blooms by the literal millions. Covered with tall wildflowers and wispy grasses, the expansive grassy summit basks in abundant spring sunshine and cool mountain breezes. And the views of the surrounding Appalachians are absolutely breathtaking. Schoolhouse Falls Schoolhouse Falls 2.6 MILES, ROUND TRIP Blooming wildflowers, budding rhododendron, and an exceptionally beautiful waterfall: this is simply one amazing spring hike.
