Description
Waypoints (0)

This is a challenging but not too long trail with breathtaking views. The climbs begin early and there are amazing overlooks throughout. Users will find beautiful flora, and in some parts hike through meadows in the middle of the woods. Beware that there can be slippery rocks and a fair amount of mud. Traveller tip: get a takeout lunch at Well-Bred Cafe in Biltmore Village, bring some camp chairs and make it a lunch date at one of the several lookouts.

Sections of the Blue Ridge Parkway were closed, so we tried an alternative route get to the trail head via Stoney Fork Road, but that didn't work either. Stoney Fork Road is closed about 4 miles before the trail head.

Just tried to hike this. However, the gate was closed about four miles before the trailhead. Just FYI for anyone else interested in this hike

This is a lovely little gem not far from town! Trail is muddy and very narrow so wear appropriate footwear and be considerate of social distance. You usually won’t see many other hikers though, which is why I love it!

Very intense, very muddy but besides all that the views were amazing and you can not drive to trail head roads were completely iced over

Great hiking!! Wonderful views. One section is very narrow cliff walking. Good workout but my 8 yr old girl completed it just fine. Last Saturday in November, not crowded at all and it was a beautiful 60* day. Lots of roots and stones so wear sturdy shoes, but also several sections of smooth walking. Happy hiking

Overall trail in good shape but muddy in sections . I started at the directions provided and registered 4.6 miles. Endless views. It would make more sense to park at the pull over described below as the extra mile doesn’t provide anything except exercise not more views. I would rate this more on the difficult side comparing it to some of the other ratings all trails provides.
