In the heart of Burke County, where the undulating landscapes of the Appalachian Mountains meet the inviting foothills, South Mountains State Park stands as an equestrian haven, beckoning riders to embark on a journey into the heart of nature. Just 55 miles east of Asheville, this park transcends the ordinary, offering an unrivaled backcountry experience.

With elevations reaching a majestic 3,000 feet, South Mountains State Park unfolds as a vast playground for outdoor enthusiasts. A tapestry of nearly 50 miles of trails crisscrosses the terrain, creating a paradise for hikers, horseback riders, and mountain bikers alike. Every trail tells a story, leading adventurers through dense woodlands, beside bubbling creeks, and to scenic overlooks that unveil the breathtaking beauty of the region.

Amidst this natural wonderland, the crown jewel is the High Shoals Falls, an 80-foot cascade that adds a symphony of nature's music to the park's allure. The sound of rushing water becomes a companion to the rhythmic hoofbeats of horses, creating a sensory experience that transcends the ordinary.
