HIKING

Hike the Blue Ridge Mountains right outside your door. Choose from five different hikes among white oaks and red maples, with mountain laurel that grows so thick in places, it creates a lush umbrella over the entire pathway. Trails range from easy to moderately difficult, but each affords spectacular views from scenic vantage points.

The Ridgecrest Trail System is located on private property. All guests must register at the Main Entrance and agree to all rules and regulations when hiking on Ridgecrest Conference Center’s property.

SWITCHBACK

Switchback Game Room is where fellowship and fun come together. This game room provides a unique space for guests to relax and connect with one another through a medley of fun activities.

Switchback is fitted with foosball, table tennis, billiards, carpet ball, and tabletop games like checkers, tumbling towers, and connect four.

Centrally located steps away from Clouds Coffee Shop and Nibble Nook, Switchback will be your go-to spot for friendly competition. Swing by, unwind, and make some memories together!
