LINVILLE FALLS: Linville Falls is an unincorporated community at the junction of Avery, Burke and McDowell counties. The community is named after Linville Falls, a spectacular three-tiered waterfall plunging into the Linville Gorge, also known as the Grand Canyon of the southern Appalachians. The Falls Trail is a popular hiking destination for all levels. Explore the wilderness in the deepest, most remote gorge east of the Rockies. Accommodations range from cabins and lodges to campgrounds. Linville Falls is a great place for fishing, too. NEWLAND: This small municipality has been the county seat of Avery County since Newland was incorporated in 1913 and has the distinction of being the highest county seat east of the Mississippi. The recently remodeled classical courthouse overlooks a traditional town square bordered by shops and churches, complete with a memorial to Avery County veterans. Newland is home to several annual festivals, and a beautiful Riverwalk. PINEOLA: Pineola is an unincorporated community that spans approximately three miles of Christmas tree farms. Pineola is the site of several businesses, including a general store and a small hotel. The Linville River flows through the area and is impounded by a dam into a small lake for Linville Land Harbor, a resort community. The Blue Ridge Parkway passes through the southeast portion of the area.

(828) 898-5605

During the early 1900s, it was the site of a large logging operation and sawmill. The East Tennessee and Western North Carolina Railroad (Tweetsie) operated in the community until 1939. PLUMTREE: More than just the site of the movie “Winter People,” Plumtree on Highway 19E in southwest Avery County is a breathtaking synthesis of history and beauty. The Toe River rushes vigorously through the center of the tiny community offering superb trout fishing and relaxation opportunities. Plumtree is also home to Fraser Fir Christmas trees, mica museum, brewery, camping, and Toe River Lodge. SEVEN DEVILS: Established as a resort in the 1960s, Seven Devils was incorporated in 1979. The Town is sheltered by the mile-high Hanging Rock Mountain and Dunveagan Peak, and is home to Hawksnest’s Tubing and Zip Line, one of the longest snow tubing and zip line facilities on the East Coast. SUGAR MOUNTAIN: With its 1,200foot vertical, Sugar Mountain Resort is the largest ski area in North Carolina, and one of few resorts breaking a 1,000-foot vertical south of New England. But Sugar Mountain isn’t just a winter destination. In the spring, summer and fall the resort offers hiking, biking, lift rides and its popular Sugar Mountain Oktoberfest.
