A short relatively easy hike to a spectacular view. Parking is off the access road to the Skyland Resort. The nearest bathroom is at the Skyland Dining Room.

This trail had the best vantage point of any other trail we hiked this time out. Beautiful view, but only on a clear day. The hike up was not difficult. A good trail to start or end the day on. Bring a camera!

We did this trail twice, once when it was super foggy and once when it was clear. The fog was a cool experience, but you couldn't see anything. Definitely go on a clear day, the view is amazing!
