Guided Hike to 3 Amazing Waterfalls - 2.5 Hour Hiking Tour
"Clayton was an excellent tour guide. From the moment he picked us up at the hotel to when he dropped us off, he was full of information on the area we were staying in (Asheville) as well as driving through and going to. He is local and knows a lot of history as well as outdoor skills. We went through Canton and he told us about the local paper mill. This was important because the area we went to for the very special waterfalls had no old trees from when the mill cut them down. Yet, it was so beautiful with younger trees (yes, they are tall), the waterfalls, the "swimming holes", flowers, etc. Then we went on to the Blue Ridge Pkwy and it was clear after the night of rain. The sun was out and we had a gorgeous view. Thank you for this very special private tour that "took our hands" and helped us enjoy nature."..."
