Lake Lure Paddleboard Day Trip From Asheville

Already paddled in Asheville before? Are you looking for a new adventure? On this half-day paddleboard day trip from Asheville we head to Lake Lure to go standup paddling beneath the towering cliffs of Rumbling Bald and iconic Chimney Rock.

You’ll visit the cove where Dirty Dancing was filmed, and paddle beneath the Flowering Bridge to the mouth of the scenic Broad River. After 1.5 hours of paddling with your guide you’ll make a stop in Chimney Rock village to shop, eat lunch, or grab a beer at the brewery before making the trip back to Asheville.
