“This 3.2 mile trail climbs aggressively from the Big Run Portal Trail to Skyline Drive.”

This is an aggressive 3.2 mile trail that starts in a valley off of the Big Run Portal Trail
. The trail literally follows the ridge from the beginning all the way up to Skyline Drive. Only about 3/4 of the way through does it actually utilize a few switchbacks during the entire 1600' climb.
The trail ends just north of the Loft Mountain Wayside parking lot and can be added to other local trails to make a loop if desired.
