North Carolina Bucket List: NC Road Trippin: Wiseman’s View of the Linville Gorge Wilderness: A Crazy Drive for Epic Scenery Last Updated on April 16, 2020
Wiseman’s View of the Linville Gorge Wilderness is one place I always tell people about. Of course, I also warn them about the drive to get up there. If you’ve been up to this awesome spot in Western North Carolina, you’ll know why it’s worth the four-ish mile trip over rocks, holes, and various twists and turns up Kistler Memorial Highway.
And when you head up toward Wiseman’s View for the first time, you’ll need some extra patience. The epic scenery that you’ll find at the end of this crazy drive and super-easy walk is absolutely worth every grimace and swear word you shout as you make your way.
An added bonus is all the fun that you can find around this place. And there’s plenty of it, whether you hop on the Blue Ridge Parkway or opt for a quicker, less picturesque route.
