Find the best and most beautiful mountain views (all to see for free!) near Asheville in the western North Carolina mountains with our new Top 15 NC Mountain Views list. Since we are surrounded by national and state parks and forests that preserve so much mountain land, we have some plenty of breathtaking vistas. While many of these are along the Blue Ridge Parkway, others are in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, along the Appalachian Trail and in the Pisgah and Nantahala National Forests. Some views are roadside and easy to see, while others require a hike. See the new list with photos of each at http://www.romanticasheville.com/mountain_views.htm.
