Park
“360 degree panoramic views! This is an easy 1.5 mile out-and-back paved trail (through rhododendron gardens in the summer). I always recommend this hike to guests because it offers a nice 45 minute drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway and excellent views. Sometimes the fog can be thick in the mornings at high elevation. Take a look at the forecast before you plan your trip! ”
