Torry Ridge Trail is best runed as a descent from Bald Mountain off the Blue Ridge Parkway (with a pick up car at the bottom of course). The trailhead is well marked at the top of the forest road. Of course running up it and back down is always an option. From the top, Torry Ridge Trail intersects with Slacks Trail then Blue Loop Trail twice before the final descent to Torry Furnace. Big views offered along the length of the ridge.
This trail covers a variety of terrain including rocky and steep sections.
