Carrier Park (West Asheville) Trails by the River
Blue Ridge Parkway: Leash laws apply here and these fines are federal. The Mountains-To-Sea trail runs through the woods along this two lane highway. Pull offs are clearly marked. Other cars are usually there. Cross country runners abound. Another reason to keep your pooch on a leash. The "commuter zone" that runs through Asheville is not very wide. Many residences back up to the federal land.
