One of if not the main trail in the park. Blue Blazing. This is the trail to hike. Connects the AT to 5 trails directly. Western section offers great view. Many of the connector trails can be made into challenging loops.

We took Appalachian Trail from 301, heading North, moderate hiking up hills and rocks. At approx 2 miles, we turned right onto Blue Trail , down rocky hill to beach and concession stand. Great workout for a day hike. Chose to return to car via 301 as we were pressed for time.

This is the trail to take. The western section ridge runs and offers great views. This trail connects to many other trails and is a great stating place for a loop hike to start.
