    Cameron Potts reviewed Pinnacle Trail

    over 1 year ago

    Good day hike, but get there early because the crowds get obnoxious around late morning into the afternoon. Great 360° ridge line views at the top, some enjoyable rock scrambling, but the crowds put a major damper on this trail - which is expected being the closest thing to Charlotte. Worth a go though.

    Great option for an easy day. Most of the hike occurs on the straightaway through the forest as the trail gently rolls up and occasionally down. The forest is thick and full of eye candy. Bring a good partner for great conversations cuz you should have your breath on this hike. You'll suddenly appear out of the forest and find yourself amongst a rock yard beside the lake. Relax, grab a bite, and take pics of the shear wall of rock brilliance on the other side of the lake.

    While visiting one of the most famous lakes in the world, be sure to put in some effort and visit Lake Louise's little sister, Lake Agnes. Trail is very well maintained. You can grab fantastic hot tea at the shack while overlooking Lake Agnes. The beehives are wondrous, the water is beautiful, and pretty much everything is fantastic about this classic hike.

    Very enjoyable hike. The hike begins amongst the trees and is fairly gradual. Once you begin the straightaway into the canyon, you be greeted with meadows of mountain flowers and stunning views of Castle Mountain on your left. When you reach the lower lake, take a break. You will need it because the final ascent to the upper lake is very strenuous, but so worth it.

    Cameron Potts reviewed Butter Gap to Cat Gap Trail

    My wife and I backpacked this loop in January. We added John Rock in as well, and that is well worth it - great views of the hatchery and Looking Glass Rock. I highly recommend going clockwise as it will give you steadier inclines. Cedar Rock gives you some nice rockface views - this is also marks your last major incline. Camp out at the A-frame Butter Gap shelter or keep going - there are literally dozens of campsites along the trail. However, most water sources are on the west end of the trail, along with a couple great waterfalls. The last 3 miles are a smooth descent with the sound of running water as you go.

    Beautiful and smooth loop to casually walk to. Grab a good friend who's good at conversations (and maybe photography too) and knock yourselves out.

    Fan-freaking-tastic hike. Mind this is a hike that makes you work, but boy is the view rewarding. But hey, the hike itself is very fun, with some rock scrambling around the summit. Views on both sides are great! A must in Shenandoah.

    One of my all-time favs. It's a rock scrambling haven. Think adult obstacle course. Smooth start to the base serves as a great warmup. The rock scramble is fantastic, and no matter how many times you go, you can go a different route making this a great repeater! Once you reach the top, turn around for a right breathtaking view (if you have any breath left) of those famous Blue Ridges.

    Blue Ridge staple - a must see if you're driving the parkway.

    Cameron Potts reviewed Flat Top Mountain Trail

    Flat Top is a good alternative to its neighbor, Sharp Top. Not near the crowds with a more steady ascent. Smooth start through some beautiful woods gives this a great warm up. Unfortunately this is not a bald peak, like Sharp Top is, so your views will be obstructed by trees most times. Go in the fall or winter, when only some or none of the leaves remain - this should help give you more views.

    As a Liberty Alumni, this a staple for Virginians. The hike is relatively short, but challenging. Trail is well maintained; it is even paved near the top. Plenty of good peekaboo views to encourage you along the way and for breaks. Not to mention the 360º views from the top are as good as it gets in the Apps. You can see for miles across plains to east and rolling mountains to the west. Sunrise hikes are also spectacular here, just bring proper lighting (and you will likely avoid the crowds).
