I enjoyed hiking here--this facility is on Penrod Rd. which is very accessible, really right near the main road though town. The center itself was closed the day I was there, but I liked the outdoor activities which are part of the complex.

425 South Woodland Road. There is a stop light at White Mountain Boulevard (SR 260) and Woodland Road (right by the theater). Turn south, the WMNC is a mile south on the left.
