Follow 501 North to the Blue Ridge Parkway. From there take a left onto the park way and follow it for about 7 miles then make a right onto Petites Gap rd. (Petites Gap rd. is a single lane dirt/gravel road on the side of a mountain. Be very careful on your way there and back.) The trail head is about 2.7 miles on your right.

Had a great time with this hike today. I would recommend the out and back here. There are some other areas that show this as a loop. The trail at the top by the camp ground area, is a small trail, and ends quickly. It is not marked. Not for those who are not ready to hike off trail to get back to parking. Very fun area. This a must do, simply for the beauty of these rock formations.

Demanding hike, make sure to bring your big boy pants and leave your dead weight at home. Great rock scramble, beautiful views.
