Trail shared by Lyle Mitchell

A steep ridge climb with some breathtaking views, followed by a beautiful Pisgah descent and then gravel road back.

Description

Find a small pull-off to park on Curtis Creek Road, then run ~50 ft further up the gravel to find a trail on your right. Start heading up trail and keep on heading up. Early on, you'll pass an impacted campsite area. Continuing up the steep trail from there eventually brings you to Snooks Nose Overlook, with beautiful, sweeping panoramas. Don't worry - there's more climbing to come up to Laurel Knob. Continued climbing eventually spits you out at the Blue Ridge Parkway.
