This week of clouds finally parted to give us an amazing view from above the clouds. There is also an earthcache here for those familiar.

We did this as part of a 13 mile loop that included the AT, Furnace Mountain and Blackrock Summit. Going counterclockwise and starting from the Blackrock Summit parking area, we went down the AT to take a left along the ridges down to the fire road. From there we went up to Furnace Mtn, then on to Trayfoot. As Trayfoot is not much to look at, we continued to the Blackrock Summit Spur trail and saved the best views for the end of our trek. Great 360 degree views from the top and the rock formations are fun to walk around on. We saw a "rock" guitar and met a huge black bear on the trail down to the parking area. Great trail offering lots of variety.

Loved this hike. Ends at an outcrop of rocks perfect for the view. If you're really adventurous you can climb the rocks to the top of the outcrop for a great panoramic view.

Nice little loop. Can be kind of busy in the middle of the day, but overall good view.
