Warren Wilson Running Trails

Warren Wilson Running Trails: The numerous hiking and running trails at Warren Wilson College are some of our personal favorites. The area is home to miles of great singletrack that carves through rolling meadows and beautiful forests seemingly endless options for exploration. One of our favorites is the River Trail that runs parallel to the Swannanoa River with lots of opportunities to cool off after a run (now closed due to flooding), but there are other great options to be explored throughout the pastoral campus setting.
