“A popular trail that intersects with Rock Jock Trail and connects to the Linville Gorge Trail.”— Max Willner
The Conley Cove Trail is a relatively steep trail that descends from Rock Jock Trail almost 1,000 feet (with lots of switchbacks) towards the Linville Gorge Trail.
This is one of several approaches backcountry runners can use to access the Linville Gorge Wilderness Loop.
Local fauna - white-tail deer, black bears, squirrel, raccoon, grouse, turkey, vultures, owls, hawks, as well as brown and rainbow trout. There are also copperheads and timber rattlesnakes.
