This trail needs removed as the description is misleading. It's the same as thurston grigs, just the mileage doesn't include the overlook or anything worth seeing. There is no waterfall either.

We hiked to a scenic overlook via one of the side trails. We were a little off trail, but it was still a nice view when we got to the top of the mountain.

Great trail but this is actually Thurston Griggs trail. It links to the Appalachian and you can follow it to back rock overlook. When taking this trail you go right to continue to the overlook. It's very steep and rocky but great fun!

Short trail which links to the AT. Good workout to get to the AT

Very short. Quiet, uphill, rocky hike with a portion that parallels a brook.
Easy to access trailhead, but limited parking- which is fine because I only saw 1 other person.
Will be going back to snowshoe this winter!

It's called the Thurston Griggs trail, it's just a .5mi A.T. Side trail, not much of a hike, takes about 5-10min

Trail starts at small parking lot at the end of White Oak Rd. and then follows Black Rock Creek up to the Appalachian Trail. You pass by a small spring. From there, it is a short distance south on the AT to the Black Rock cliffs.
