Description [Suggest Changes]

This out and back run starts at the Widow's Creek Trail parking area inside Stone Mountain State Park. From here, just follow the white dot to the Blue Ridge Parkway. The trail tread bounces back and forth from doubletrack to singletrack and is not very technical, but there are some pitches that will make your legs scream! The reward for your hard work is the overlook at Devils Garden at the Blue Ridge Parkway. Once you are done taking in the views, flips around and enjoy the downhill on the way back.
