A rocky stretch of doubletrack with amazing views of the Grayson Highlands.

Description

It is hard to beat this trail! It has excellent views of the Grayson Highlands and is pretty much exposed along it's journey, which is rare for the Southern Appalachians. Although it is a doubletrack, it is technical enough to make it feel like a singletrack in places, and then other times it is a smoothed out gravel surface. Watch out for horse poop though.
