Yes the hiking is great, yes the views are spectacular, but the one thing I will recommend (at risk of losing my favorite spot) camp at the top of watchman's view. It won't disappoint with the sunrise views.

Recently completed the 23 mile Linville Gorge Loop at the end of February. It was pretty challenging & took us just under 48 hours to complete. The Loop gives you great views of the Gorge from the top and down inside of it. Finding the trail on day two made things interesting toward the second half of the 13-14 mile day. Amazing camp sites all over. Love the Linville Gorge Wilderness. If you do the loop, be prepared to work more than play or give yourself 3-4 days.

The falls are a longer trail then expected. Tell your wife your going or she may panic when your not back for a long time.

The roadside campsites near Wiseman's View Overlook afford some of the best car camping east of the Rockies! Make sure and scout your site early in the summer, as they fill up fast.
