Reimagine Yourself… on an afternoon drive in the mountains: WNC Quilt Trails

If you’re driving up to Burnsville to see The Quiltmaker, make the most of your time in the mountains and tour the WNC Quilt Trails. Many of our barns and buildings proudly display these beautiful pieces. Consider it a spring scavenger hunt on your way to the theatre.

In fact, you’ll go past one of the coolest ones on your way to the Parkway Playhouse, so be sure to stop and appreciate it since it’s one of the very few vertically hanging sun dials. Parkway Playhouse even boasts one of the many blocks–with some theatre significance. (Consider it part of the scavenger hunt to figure out the name of the block. It should be obvious why we chose it!)

So, enjoy the beautiful drive up to Yancey County. The green is spreading up the slopes, the flowers are blooming, and the birds are singing.  And be sure to look for these hidden gems in plain sight.

Here’s a quick link to a map that will give you another way to appreciate our small town! VIEW MAP
