The Owen High Nature Trail Disc Golf Course... where the flight of your frisbee is the trail and the tee-signs and scorecards are your nature guides.
The Owen High Nature Trail Disc Golf Course was designed to get kids and families... students and citizens... beginners and pros... to think about the natural world around them while recreating outdoors. Disc golf is a fun, physical activity that is essentially a "hike with a frisbee". The Kids in Parks program combined this popular recreational activity with interpretive tee-signs and scorecards so that as people make their way around the course, they can connect with the natural features that make the Swannanoa River Valley and the Blue Ridge Mountains such a wonderful place.
Set in the beautiful Swannanoa Valley, the Owen High Nature Trail Disc Golf Course is surrounded by beautiful mountain views - including a spectacular view of the Blue Ridge Parkway (the most visited unit the National Park Service) cutting across the shoulder of Mount Mitchell (the tallest mountain east of the Mississippi River). At 2438', the 9-Hole course covers nearly half a mile in frisbee flying distance... and nearly a full mile of total walking distance (and that's if you throw your discs straight). Although the course is minimally wooded, the use of elevation and OB (out-of-bounds) make it challenging.
Walking a mile and exercising in nature has never been so much fun. Look for our other Nature Trail Disc Golf Courses at Enka High School and North Buncombe High School coming soon.
