An incredible hike with fantastic views from the top. You'll pass by beautiful wildflowers along the way. Due to it being a mostly wide, gravel path, this trail is great for the whole family.Show more

This trail is described in Allan DeHarts North Carolina Hiking Trails. The trail is very easy, and the old Woody House is a must-see. Take time to visit the old School House, and Palmer Chapel while you're in the valley. Wildlife in the valley consist of Bear, Deer, Elk, and Wild Boar. In early spring close deer sightings are common. Do not attempt to approach the Boar or Elk. Bear are seldom seen, they remain on the remote high ridges of the valley. Show more
