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.
Always stay on the marked hiking trails. Tell someone where you are going, and when you’ll be back. Give yourself enough time to reach your destination and return, before it gets dark. Check the Boone NC Sunset Time.
