Notch Visitor Center Reviews & Ratings
Absolutely stunning. Love the choices of trails.
Nice and helpful staff will guide you on your way
The hike was amazing, so many mountain laurels in bloom, and so many native plants made the walk very beautiful, and interesting. Unfortunately the mosquitoes were extremely abundant.
Popular local hiking spot. Trails to summits can be steep. Many trails to choose from.
Hike the notch all the time esp like winter. Visitor center open, stopped in to figure out snake seen at viewpoint on Bare Mtn, verdict was milk snake not a juvenile copperhead so all is well.
