Since 1999, Take A Hike Mountain Outfitters has served hikers and campers visiting the Black Mountains. Our store lies at the heart of picturesque town of Black Mountain, North Carolina in a historical lumber mill building. If you are visiting the area, we are a must-shop store for local attraction t-shirts and hats. Stop in before you head up the trail and grab a Clif Bar or replace that lost water bottle. Our knowledgeable staff will help fit you for a new pair of hiking boots, hiking poles or that day pack you've been needing. Happy Trails! 

I love this place! Extremely friendly staff, great selection, service and sales going on all the time! Definitely make this a point of destination for your next Black Mountain visit.
