Black Balsam Knob via Art Loeb Trail is a 1.6 mile moderately trafficked out and back trail located near Canton, North Carolina that features a great forest setting and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking and trail running and is best used from March until October.
pretty much straight up. great views.
Entire Art Loeb trail/ Shining Rock Wilderness is magical.
Amazing Hike. Some of the best views I have seen on the Blue Ridge. Easy Hike In and Out
Passing through from the Art Loeb Trail headed to the top of Shining Rock. It's beautiful up here.
One of my favorite hikes thus far. Easy access from the road and a quick, easy hike up to the balds. Once you reach the top you can go as far as youd like before turning around. The views are spectacular! My pup loved it as well!
