“This trail leads through gorgeous old-growth forests on its way to and from the Appalachian Trail.”— John Maurizi
To access the blue-blazed Osborn Loop, start on the Appalachian Trail where it crosses South Mountain Pass Road and follow its steep terrain to the trail junction with the Osborn Loop. Once you've made it to the junction, the actual Osborn Loop is a piece of cake.
While easy and smooth-treaded throughout its entire length, don't expect great views from this trail. Instead, enjoy the feelings of seclusion and solitude it brings as you meander through its dense forest cover.
Upon reaching the end of the trail, you can head south on the AT to return to your car.
