Hike to an Airplane Crash in North Carolina

We all know that North Carolina has much to offer; however, it’s home to only one known plane crash site. Tucked in the Great Smoky Mountains, Waterrock Knob Trail is your literal road to ruin. A highly-rated trail for hikers and explorers alike, the trail is two miles roundtrip, located at the highest elevation on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The closest city being Waynesville, the area has a remote feel to it, making it the perfect spot for stargazing, bird watching and complete immersion in nature. Of course, its most unnatural feature is its plane crash site.
