Hiking in Aska
If you are like most people, you are here in the Aska Area to get nature. What better way to experience this but by hitting the numerous hiking trails. Both the Appalachian Trail (The A.T.) and the Benton MacKaye Trail (B.M.T.) starts just a few miles south of Aska, on Springer Mountain. You will find the area riddled with the all well known white rectangle for the A.T. and the white diamond shape (for the B.M.T.) painted on trees, lamp posts and even on pavements.
Other than these two major arteries cutting through the area, Aska is home to a number of other trail systems. The most known and visited are the Aska Trails or the Aska Trail Systems.The trail head is just a short distance south of the beginning of Aska Road You simply cannot miss the countless of cars in season. This is not my personal favorite hiking spot as there really is not much to see other than crowds. If you are OK with a crowded hiking experience than these trails are recommended. There a number of different length loops.
Further up on Aska Road, on your left, you will find Long Branch Loop, which a great short hike – excellent for biking.
