ASHEVILLE — Just in time for the holiday giving season, the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation is announcing a matching grant for the organization’s new Trails & Views Forever Fund. An anonymous donor is offering a challenge grant of $300,000 to jump-start this initiative to repair trails, picnic areas, campgrounds, overlooks, and other amenities on the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Whether living here in Haywood County or visiting for the holiday, lots of us love to get outside and balance out some food, football and shopping while enjoying the magic that is our mountains. It’s a time for family and friends but quite often finding a hike that fits the interests and conditioning level of your whole group is a struggle. Purchase Knob can help keep you together this Thanksgiving.

We're always interested in hearing about news in our community. Let us know what's going on!
