Great hike to Shining Rock from Blue Ridge Pkwy over Black Balsam Knob and camped on a bald before Shining Rock.

Passing through from the Art Loeb Trail headed to the top of Shining Rock. It's beautiful up here.

One of my favorite hikes thus far. Easy access from the road and a quick, easy hike up to the balds. Once you reach the top you can go as far as youd like before turning around. The views are spectacular! My pup loved it as well!

Amazing trail with great views along the whole thing. Moderate trail, with a few strenuous parts. Busy by the Black Balsam portion. Weather changes very quickly, so pack appropriately.

Great trail, very tough with all the leaves down, makes it very slippery.

Nice creek and Cold Mountain near by. Boy Scout camp and while not active was in backdrop much of the hike
