Newland is a tiny village that sits on the banks of the North Toe River in the Blue Ridge Mountains of northwestern North Carolina. Located in Avery County in what is known as "High Country," this area is comprised mostly of small towns of less than 1,000 permanent residents, yet it is one of the most desirable tourist destinations in the southeastern United States. Newland is near many of the most popular North Carolina attractions such as Grandfather Mountain, Linville Falls and Linville Gorge, the Tweetsie Railroad and the Pisgah National Forest. It's also in the center of ski country, including Sugar Mountain, North Carolina's largest ski resort. Sugar Mountain boasts a 1200-foot vertical and has 20 trails and 8 lifts spread out over 115 acres. Besides downhill skiing, there are trails for snowboarding and snowshoeing, and a special tubing park. Newland offers many other recreational opportunities, as well, with 9 hiking trails, 6 waterfalls, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, fishing and golf. Avery County is host to the Highland Games and Gathering of the Scottish Clans each year and Newland village is near other mountain resort towns such as Banner Elk and Beech Mountain.
