This is a short loop at the top of Roanoke Mountain. There is not much to the trail, but It is a good place to get out for a stretch and very quick hike after driving on the Blue Ridge Parkway. The best views however are from the parking area near the trailhead, as well as at an overlook half way up the winding one-way road that you enter directly off the BRP.
