A very short drive from Little Switzerland on the Blue Ridge Parkway sits a beautiful Apple Orchard. It is one of my personal favorite places to hike! The Orchard at Altapass offers a small grill, ice cream, homemade fudge, great local jams, honey, salsas and other yummy treats, crafts, live music and dancing! The music is traditional Appalachian music complete with local clog style dance! The hiking trails are amazing....my personal favorite is trail 2! It loops around to fields of beautiful rhododendron outlined by apple trees. The rhodos will be blooming very soon and due to a late spring apple trees will also be blooming! Check out the Orchard when your in our little town! ... See MoreSee Less
