Richmond Hill Park (Mountain Biking, Disc Golf, Dog Friendly): Located just minutes from downtown Asheville, Richmond Hill Park offers disc golfers and mountain bikers in Asheville an easy opportunity to get outdoors and into the woods. The park offers more than three miles (with plans to build more) of mountain biking on speedy singletrack trails with just enough technical difficulty to make things exciting. For disc golfers looking to test their skills, this 18-hole course nestled in a dense hardwood forest offers just such a challenge. While dogs are required to be on leash, we do consider this a ‘dog friendly’ adventure. After the adventure, you are a mere 2 miles from downtown which means lots of local breweries including one of our favorites, Lexington Ave Brewery.
