One of the more gentle trails (minus the descent off Sitting Bear) in the gorge, and one of the least traveled.

Description

The trail crosses over the ridge between Hawksbill and Gingercake Mountains. It is a pretty mellow trail besides the section near the Sitting Bear, which is a big rock formation that looks like, well you guessed it, a sitting bear. That section of the trail is only a tenth of a mile long, but it is the steepest section of trail in the entire gorge. It's just the trail's way of keeping you honest in the Linville Gorge.
