Blowing Rock is a town in Watauga and Caldwell counties in the U.S. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Glen Burney Trail and The Cascades Trail. Visiting Grandfather Mountain and Zipline will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Elk Knob State Park (in Todd), Linville Falls (in Linville Falls) and Linville (Rough Ridge Lookout & Hawksbill Mountain Trail). And it doesn't end there: hike along Bass Lake, look for gifts at Mountain Dog, stroll through Catawba River Greenway, and explore and take pictures at Moses H. Cone Memorial Park.
