Scenic views, wildflowers, and rugged beauty. Babel Tower Trail is a tough hike – dropping steeply down into the Linville Gorge. You’ll think you’ve hiked 10 miles before you get there. In the spring, wild flowers grow along the trail side, and the views of the river at the tower are breathtaking as you stand on a ledge with about 400 feet of air between you and the river. You will really feel the burn as you make the climb back up from the river to the trailhead.
