A pad in the Blue Ridge in Traphill

Traphill is a gateway to the bulbous granite ridges of the Stone Mountain State Park and the fringes of the North Carolinian Blue Ridge Mountains; it's a fine place for that escape to Appalachia. You'll be hiking wooded trails on the rocky ridges around the city and gasping at hazy vistas of beautiful river valleys in no time, plus you can trace the rough history of moonshining and Prohibition. Traphill vacation rentals offer the perfect country pad. Some are vintage cabins with timber-built decks, others are romantic boltholes that hug babbling streams and forests.

Things to do

Wineries and bewitching homesteads around Traphill

If you're preparing for an outdoors adventure over the sculpted slopes of Stone Mountain, then be sure to mark the Hutchinson Homestead on the map. It sits on a grassy meadow midway up the trails and offers an enchanting glimpse into the age-old farming culture of North Carolina. You'll see crooked barns and timber-built cabins, all huddled by rickety farming machinery from way back when. After that, how about a tipple in a winery? The McRitchie Winery and Ciderworks is just up the road, offering tastes of sparkling wine and homemade apple brews.

Activities

Hit the trails in Traphill

Surely you won't be able to resist the rises of the Blue Ridge Mountains? They're among the most photographed peaks in America and shroud little Traphill vacation rentals with their granite slopes and wooded outlines. There are countless trails on the menu for those with an appetite to explore. Just lace up the boots, dust down the compass and hit the paths that wiggle out from Longbottom Road and into the Stone Mountain State Park. If you prefer to travel on 4 wheels, the meandering John P Frank Parkway promises a beautiful drive through the forests.

Weather

Falling for Traphill

Traphill vacation rentals in the forest are a doozy when it comes to getting front-row seats for the amazing fall changing of the colors. As the months of September and October set in, the whole Blue Ridge range starts to go from green to red to yellow. It's high time for hiking and exploring around Stone Mountain. Summer – between June and August – is hot, but also popular with walkers. Winter – from December to March – brings snows, so you might want to seek out a cozy pad and pack the skis for that.

Natural features

A taste of Appalachia in Traphill

The fabled Blue Ridge Mountains of Appalachia start just a whisker away from bucolic little Traphill. A taste of them can be had at the close-by Stone Mountain State Park. It's topped with one huge dome of granite rock that hosts pockets of oak and beech and fir trees, all clambering around a series of marked hiking trails. Delve within and you'll also find beautiful rivers and creeks filled with fish, along with several waterfalls that babble down over sloping granite bluffs.
