You have Chimney Rock and its trails and Bat Cave (not a batman joke) Preserve. Multiple RV parks in the area.

If you want to go a little further north (up to Virginia) around the Abington area you have the Virginia Creeper Trail which you can hike or bike its nice.

We spent several summers in Handersonville, NC ,it is one of our favorite spots away from FL . I always enjoy hiking at Dupont State Forest to several waterfalls ( High falls , triple falls,etc.) . You can stop by at visitor's office and get a free trail-detailed map of the Dupont Forest . This area offers vast amount of trail network to satisfy the novice and the hard-core backpacker and anything in between . My second favorite hiking place in Hendersonville is Karl Sandburg's estate (spelling ?) . This estate is currently a state park and open to public for hiking (free ) . From here you can take shorter hikes or longer hikes to Glass Mtn. Good luck and have a safe trip.
