    Babel Tower is an amazing hike, but I would not describe it as easy. There’s a saying about Linville Gorge, “What goes down into the gorge, must come back up.” -(can’t remember who’s quote it is)

    My go-to for swimming and view. Difficult enough of a trail to get away from crowds and families. Continue straight over the rocks to access a ladder-like path to the top of the “tower” for a view of both directions of the river below.
