Whether you rent a bike or bring one from home, you'll want to head up the Emerald Outback Trail, which takes you more than 5,000 feet above sea level. Visitors also love Grandfather Mountain, Rocky Knob Mountain Bike Park, Banner House Museum and Beech Mountain History Museum. Those attractions represent just a few things you can do in the area and give you an idea of why you should look for a Banner Elk timeshare today.
Blue Ridge Mountains Weather
The Blue Ridge Mountains are easily one of the most beautiful and accessible mountain ranges in the nation. Banner Elk is right in the heart of this mountain range and experiences the same climate and weather patterns that you would expect. You can expect some light snow to fall as early as October and to keep falling through February or March. It can be quite cold the higher you go into the mountains but still be nice and sunny further below. You may find it helpful to wear layers to compensate for those temperature changes.
