The Blue Ridge Parkway Hiking Trails and Grandfather Mountain Hiking Trails can suddenly turn dangerous if you get caught in a severe afternoon thunderstorm, get injured on the trail, get lost off the trail, or end up in the woods after dark. Forget about cell phone coverage – they rarely work along the Blue Ridge Parkway.
