Black Balsam Knob via Art Loeb Trail is a 1.6 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Canton, North Carolina that features a great forest setting and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and trail running and is accessible from March until October.
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!
