One of the best trails in all of Virginia! Sharing The Wild - Luxury Travel Designs has been coming here and recommending this trail to travelers for years! The parking lot is rather small so be sure to get here early in the day or be prepared to wait for others to leave. Two trails, under a mile in length (rated moderate and challenging) will lead to the top where gorgeous panoramic views will take your breathe away and leave you filling inspired. Checkout the awesome photos we were able to get at the top!
Amazing 3900ft views, short hike from parking lot, 22min from Floyd, pleasant summer breezes at the top. 2 trails up that join to a final trial to the peak. Red trail is less steep but longer at 0.9mi and blue trail steeper with more natural 'steps' at 0.5mi. They meet to the orange trail which is another 0.3mi to the top. Blue+orange trail takes about 25min to peak at natural walking pace. 10 spaces at parking lot and a nice portapotty available.
