The parking area



From the parking area you will walk up hill, then Cross the road. The road is busy so watch your butt. You will only have about 0.2 of level hiking before you start the big climb. The elevation gain is about 300 feet over 0.2 miles, it is not easy but it is short.





After crossing the road













Their is a cool view at the top of the valley below. The mountain across from us carries the AT in the opposite direction, note the perch on the other side where you can get a view of this mountain.(click on the pictures to enlarge).













This is a great area for hiking. Check out the nearby Blue Mountain loop and the Pinnacle for more Appalachian trail hiking and Glen Onoko for some awesome waterfalls.
