My fiancee and I are heading to Asheville for a very short weekend. We will have approximately five hours to go on a hike (in order to fit in the other things we want to do.) I'm looking for suggestions of the most beautiful, scenic, or otherwise awesome options for hiking that are within one hour's drive of downtown and can be completed in 2 to 4 hours. We will also have our dog with us. This will be next week, so not warm enough to swim, but pretty waterfalls or swimming holes, etc are also bonuses.
I grew up hiking in western NC but haven't been back in years, and my fiancee has never been, so I really want to wow her with gorgeous views and lots of wildflowers.
