If you think Fayetteville is all about outdoor adventures, you’re not wrong. That said, while the town has a dense population of outdoor adventure junkies and corresponding world-class activities, it also offers plenty of indoor adventures for a rainy day. If you’re planning a trip to Fayetteville and the weather is looking bleak, here are a few ideas for fun out-of-the-weather activities to mix into your vacation.
The park has 12.8 miles of easy-to-intermediate biking trails. We offer 2 hour and half day guided biking trips ranging from east to intermediate based on guests needs and requests.
There are many popular hiking trails include the 1.6-mile Long Point Trail, which provides views of the gorge and the bridge and the 2.4-mile Endless Wall Trail, known for its 1,000-foot-high views of the river below. For a more solitary experience, try the two-mile loop Big Branch Trail. You'll find a cascading stream, waterfalls and the remnants of an old homestead site, and it's abloom with wildflowers in early spring. Another less crowded hike is the 0.7-mile Headhouse Trail, which goes to the entrance of an old coal mine, now a protected habitat for bats.
