Description

From Harriet Cove Road (FS Road 5011), the trail climbs steadily for about 0.5 mile to Yellow Gap with some of it requiring pushing. Along the way, you'll pass an old Chrysler that was stolen and driven up on Billy Cove Road to the point where it got stuck.

After passing it, you'll come to a "T", turn right and continue climbing to the ridge at Yellow Gap. Bent Creek is to the left and the Blue Ridge Parkway to the right.
