A section of the Appalachian trail from Woody Gap to Ramrock Mountain. An easy hike along the Appalachian Trail to the west of Woody Gap. Several campsites along the way. Nice views from the top, but only to the south.

Easy hike for the first mile. Gets easy/moderate on the back end near Ramrock. A few switchbacks at that point. And really, it’s the best part of the hike. The views are OK until that point. Then you get up and can see the entire valley down below.

Great little hike. Most of it is easy but about 1/4 mile is uphill. Nice camping spots along the trail!

Been a few times now. Little bit of something for everyone. First 3/4 mile gentle easy hike then next 1/4 mile tough uphill for most. Great overlook approximately a mile from woody gap.

Super easy, didn't realize we were hiking a mountain until we were steps from the summit

Lots of nice through hikers. Beautiful view. Cooked lunch at the top where there is a fire pit available.

Great trail with moderate difficulty. Far less strenuous than north bound hike from Woody Gap.

This trail was a great find. Very nice summit views and plenty of room to sit and rest in the shade while you enjoy them. There were a lot of cars at the trailhead, but most of the traffic seems to be departing in the opposite direction. We only saw a few other people along the way. Oh, and while most of the trail is easy, be prepared for some inclines near the overlooks.
