Hiking and Biking

Rumbling Bald Resort is surrounded by the natural beauty of Lake Lure and the Blue Ridge Mountains. Admiring the beauty while playing a round of golf, enjoying a massage and lounging by the pool is exactly what we want our guests to do, but we also want you to have a chance to explore the area. Hiking and biking trails are specifically tailored to amplify the beauty and natural surroundings of the Hickory Nut Gorge.
