A Blue Ridge Parkway experience is unlike any other, a slow-paced and relaxing drive revealing stunning long-range vistas and close-up views of the rugged mountains and pastoral landscapes of the Appalachian Highlands. Protecting a diversity of plants and animals, the Parkway meanders for 469 miles, providing opportunities for enjoying all that makes this region of the country so special.

My friend and I thoroughly enjoyed our trek up this mountain. It’s steep and rocky but so worth the 360view at the top, with lots of vistas along the way. There is a shop and restrooms at the base in case you forget anything.

I took my two dogs all the way up last week. One is 11 and the other 2, but they both were troopers. We went when it was pretty wet and muddy, so I would definitely recommend wearing hiking boots to grip the wet rocks. Coming down is a bit more challenging but it is definitely worth the trek. Saturday's are about crowded but the farther you go, the less people you see.

Wonderful trail! The hike was very pretty (a little wet in places but easily navigable). The waterfall was gorgeous. Had the bonus excitement of getting proposed to at the base of the falls! Side note, I found 2 camera SD cards in plastic cases on the right side of the falls. If anyone is missing them, please message me on Facebook!

Driven by it several times but stopped this time and definitely a great hike with some of the best views in the area. Short hike but packs plenty of punch.

Most memorable trail I’ve done. Extremely difficult, but rewarding! Pack a lunch and eat it when you finally make it to the falls.

Not an easy hike. For inexperienced hikers, like myself, you will have to push forward and take some breaks but it is well worth it once you get to the summit. Amazing views. I loved it and will definitely be back again.
