Moderate lollipop w Black Mt. Loop Tr. Well marked & maintained trail. Park @ trailhead for Grassy Cove. Cross rd & walk east .25 mi to trailhead. Easy walk through hardwood forest. At 1.6 mi begin mod switchbacks to the top @ 3 mi. Cool ascent through rocks w stairs @ the top. Hiked clockwise on Loop Tr. This is an easy addition. Recommend. The views & hiking around the southern bluffs are the payoff on this hike. 8.1 mi. Fun afternoon.
