Since we moved to Western North Carolina almost 3 years ago, we have been trying to discover all the beautiful places around us.
This past Memorial Day, we decided to visit Purchase Knob.
We didn’t know what we were getting ourselves into, and it can be scary sometimes, as we are definitely not in the greatest of shapes. It was an almost 2 miles hike uphill but at the end, the views were more than worth it.
At 5086 ft of elevation, Purchase Knob stands out in the profile of mountains in this area. Views of the Cumberland Plateau, the Black Mountains, Pisgah National Forest and of course the Smokies can be had from atop.
