We took the AT from Blackrock Summit parking area to the left on the Rockytop Trail and then another left toward Austin Mountain as we were doing the complete ridge loop down to the fire road and back up Furnace Mountain. The Rockytop portion of the trail [and Lewis Mountain "may" be a bit better] was nice walk in the woods at first and then we went along the left ridge through the rockpiles, which are pretty cool, and then down to the fire road. Views are ok, and rockpiles are a neat feature to pick your way through, but there are better trails nearby with more bang for your effort.
