Black-Mountain is called "The Front Porch of Western North Carolina." It's a small town where most everything is within walking distance, but don't let the size of the town fool you - there's plenty to see and do in Black Mountain. It's located just east of Asheville in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina. The tree-lined residential streets are lined with upscale gift shops, art galleries, Appalachian craft shops, an old-fashioned general store and a corner ice cream parlor. Just a few blocks from downtown are Black Mountain's city park and Lake Tomahawk. The lake has lighted paths that are nice for an evening stroll, and adjacent to the lake are tennis courts and a children's playground. Black Mountain also offers an 18-hold golf course set against wooded hillsides and a small creek. Several fine restaurants are located in Black Mountain and numerous conference centers are within a few miles of town. The charming village of Montreat abuts the city limits of Black Mountain. Numerous hiking and biking trails are in the area that vary in skill level, from an easy hike to Lookout Point to an all day strenuous walk across the Seven Sisters Mountain Range. The Blue Ridge Parkway is just an eight minute drive from Black Mountain, and other nearby attractions include The Biltmore Estate, Cold Mountain (made famous by the book by Charles Frazier and the subsequent movie,) Chimney Rock Park, Grandfather Mountain and white water rafting on the Nantahala River.

Black Mountain Weather & Climate

The Southwestern Mountains of North Carolina ranges from 800 feet to over 6,600 feet in elevation and the topography definitely affects the local weather. Expect temperatures to be 10 to 20 degrees cooler on the mountaintops than in the valleys below. Spring is unpredictable, particularly at the higher elevations. Snow may fall in March, but by May, things warm up with daytime highs in the 80s. Summer is warm and humid, but more pleasant at the higher elevations, with frequent afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Winter is generally moderate, but more extreme conditions can occur at the mountain peaks. Large snow amounts and severe low temperatures are rare away from the highest peaks. Ski resorts usually rely on snowmaking equipment to ensure a good base. In general, the climate is not extreme, and supports year round activities.
