YOUR TRAIL...The Flame Azalea

Ride on horseback through the Flame Azalea Trail into a hardwood forest of enchanting white pines and blooming azaleas. Your approximate 60-minute guided tour starts with a 30-45 minute safety briefing and training at the Arrowmont Stables.

You’ll get acquainted with equine behavior and riding tips during a 30-45 minute safety program via training video or live demonstration.

After the safety demonstration, you’re matched with a suitable horse, you put on your helmet (under 18 helmets are mandatory), are mounted and the guide adjusts your stirrups, and then you try your horse out in the ring before setting off on the Flame Azalea Trail.

Follow your guide through a hardwood and white pine forest flanked by azaleas before you emerge into an open meadow. Reaching 4,200 feet in elevation, you’re treated to sweeping 30 mile views out of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Be on the lookout for wildlife, including raptors soaring above.

On the descent, travel past the Old Fort Lodge area — a former youth camp established in 1960 — before ending your tour back at the stables of the 200-acre working horse farm.

Closed-toe shoes mandatory & long pants recommended.

• Blue Ridge Parkway, NC
