The area is known for its outdoor beauty and exciting activities here in the area. Take a look at what a Father’s Day in Asheville can look like for you:


Hit the Mountain Biking Trails

One of the best ways to get out and see the most of Asheville is by enjoying some mountain biking. Asheville is located right by the Bent Creek Experimental Forest where you will find 6,000 acres of explorable terrain; and best of all, it is just 15 minutes away from Downtown Asheville! There are plenty of areas here on the trails that are perfect for beginnings. Check out the Homestead Trail that is just .9 miles in length and is a great way to get your feet on the pedals. Boyd Branch offers some elevation change so you can experience some quicker paces down the hills. Most experienced riders will want to head over to Green’s Lick, a popular trail in the area that is 2.5 miles in length and has some fun spots where you can make a jump or two. Biking around Asheville is not just about biking in the wilderness either. Visitors can explore the Biltmore Estate in the area where biking trails take you from paved trails to the French Board River. Kolo Bike Park is near Downtown Asheville and has plenty of multipurpose trails and dirt jumps. There is even a kids area where they can ride around too! Check out Beer City Bicycles in Downtown Asheville for all of your rental bike needs!

Wai Mauna Asheville SUP Tours will even take you on a guided river tour as you relax and take in the views. You can also beat the heat by sticking to air conditioning inside local attractions.
