We suggest you park in one of the two spaces behind the Banner House Museum and start the tour app before moving on. Parking is also available at the Mill Pond across Hickory Nut Gap Road. Approximately 1.4 mile of walking with some incline, traffic crossings and a few stairs. For ease of navigation on sidewalks, some of the sites may be across the street from the waypoint in the app. This is noted in the text. Because we are in a rural area, follow the walking tour arrows as best you can, but you can also "skip" a spot you know you are in front of so the app will move you to the next site. Your safety is important to us. Please be aware of traffic and other potential hazzards. You may choose to rest around the Historic Banner Elk School stop as there are benches near the Elk statue or you may wait to sit on the benches in front of the Village Grocery/Chamber of Commerce.
