Blue Ridge Music Center Trails

High Meadow Trail

1.35 miles—one-way—easy

This easy 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 a rich display 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.

This trail hiking only. Bicycles, horses and motorized vehicles are prohibited.

High Meadow Trail is an offical Kids in Parks Track Trail. Click here for more info.

Fisher Peak Loop

2.24 miles—loop—moderate
Information on AllTrails.com➚

Begin this trail at one of its junctions with the High Meadow Trail. The trail 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—woodpecker holes, deer tracks, and turkey dust baths.
