Flat Shoals, North Carolina Map

It’s called Five Overlooks...not peaks.

3.5hrs on hot days to complete starting at Moore. Turned this trail into a training spot long ago. Make it a half marathon by adding the falls into it. 4 stars because the people going up Hanging Rock are really annoying. Water refill if you need it is at the small creek/spring when you come down Moore and going to Cook. And yeah, you can get a patch for this at the visitors for a few bucks.

Five peaks loop is a blast. I hike slow and stopped for pictures/snacks at the peaks and it took me 8 hours to complete.Hanging Rock was my first peak and Moore's Wall was my last. This loop is a great way to see a large area of the park. Don't forget to stop in the Visitor's Center for your challenge badge if interested!

You get a badge for it. It's 10.8 miles, I did more than 13 miles in 4hrs.
