You will enjoy beautiful views of the Blackwater Falls from the boardwalk overlook at the end of this short trail. Accessibility: There are do not appear to be any designated accessible spaces in the paved parking lot off of Blackwater Lodge Road at the east end of the trail. The trail surface is a wooden boardwalk with railings and typically at least 4 feet wide. The estimated grade is gentle (3% or less). This trail will likely be navigable for most trail goers using wheelchairs/mobility equipment or strollers. Show more
