Hiking Max Patch

Looking for a great hike?

Max Patch is @ 18 miles & a 45 minute drive from Buffalo Creek Vacations.  It’s a short hike, only @ 1/2 mile to the top & pretty easy for any level of hiker..  However, it’s totally worth it!  Once you reach the top you will enjoy a spectacular 360 degree view, & on a clear day, see Mt. Mitchell to the east and the Great Smoky Mountains to the south.

If it’s going to be a clear night, plan to drive out 1 hour prior to sunset.  You’ll have plenty of time as soon as the sun sets to reach your car, however, you might want to pack a flashlight.
