When George W. Vanderbilt purchased the 1,000 acres that now form The Ramble at Biltmore Forest, he did so in hopes of quietly communing with nature during long walks in the woods. The long sloping hills, forested tranquility and mesmerizing mountain views are just as blissfully peaceful today as they were when Vanderbilt would ramble along those mountain trails.
That’s due in no small part to the meticulous planning present during the construction of The Ramble Biltmore Forest, built along the same principles Frederick Law Olmsted followed during his planning of Biltmore Forest. The result is a verdant hideaway criss-crossed by a system of pathways guiding you through the forest and into an abundance of peaceful parks.
Among the tree-shaded acres of The Ramble Biltmore Forest, you’ll find plenty of opportunity to meet up with nature in communal enjoyment of your beautiful surroundings. The Living Well Center not only offers up a fully equipped exercise room and heated saline pool, its great room serves as a great place to unwind with friends before a roaring fire.
But the real star here is the same thing that brought Vanderbilt to these woods: its lush trails. Today, they wind through an abundance of green spaces, past highlights such as Buck Spring Cabin and Bow Bridge and into the heart of the community: Longmeadow Park. With its firepit, basketball courts, natural amphitheater and formal gardens, this park is The Ramble Biltmore Forest at its finest.
