The Appalachian Trail Conservancy was founded in 1925 by volunteers and federal officials working to build a continuous footpath along the Appalachian Mountains. The A.T. is a unit of the National Park System, stretching from Georgia to Maine, at approximately 2,180 miles in length. It is the longest hiking-only footpath in the world.

If hiking is your passion then The Coves provides over 20+ miles of hiking trails in addition to the miles and miles of trails in the Pisgah National Forest adjacent to the community.
