Right off the blue ridge parkway. Short, scenic trail that will take your breath away in more ways than one. Great vistas!

Very busy even in January. The views are amazing and definitely worth the trip.

My go-to for amazing views without a big time commitment. It's a popular trail, which can be bothersome, but it's popular with good reason.

We did this with our whole family at thanksgiving. Ages 5-60. It's not terribly difficult. It was VERY crowded however. So expect to share the views with others. Well maintained Trail and a spectacular view at the top. If you are looking for an easy and short hike with a great view this would be a good choice.
