Summer Love on Max Patch

Have you found your summer love yet? This couple is enjoying the views from Max Patch, an iconic location in Haywood County with it’s ease of access (outside of snowy months), location on the Appalachian Trail, and stunning 360 views.


Mountain Top Picnic

Black Balsam Knob is another great spot to bring along picnic. In fact, Sunburst Market offers picnic baskets for rent if you don’t have your own to bring!
