“A short and sweet loop along the Overlook Trail and Boiling Spring Trail.”— Trail Run Project Staff
For visitors short on time, the overlook is worth a short out-and-back.
This loop continues up the road past the continuation of the Overlook Trail to find the Boiling Spring Trail, which gradually traverses east through the woods toward the entrance for the Old Tram Trail, Rocky Corner Trail, and Old Boundary Trail.
From the overlook, however, this run continues north along the road, passing the turnoff for the Overlook Trail to find the Boiling Spring Trail just past the 0.5-mile mark.
Turn right (east) to follow the Boiling Spring Trail toward a powerline cut where you'll pass entrances for the Old Tram Trail and Overlook Trail. As the Boiling Spring Trail bends to the right (south), you'll pass the Rocky Corner Trail and then arrive at the same powerline cut again, where the Old Boundary Trail heads left. Stay to the right on the Boiling Spring Trail until you arrive at the Sand Mountain Road.
Turn right (west) onto the Sand Mountain Road for an easy and flat return to the parking area.
