Overview

Lush run through a dense canopy that starts and ends with the same stellar view of the smokies. Some tricky roots and rocks, but overall an enjoyable haunt on the mountains to sea trail. Ends before grass and other trail greenery gets too thick.

Runner Notes

Singletrack trail is decent for running but plenty of rocks and roots so be mindful!

Description

Starts at the Grassy Ridge Mine Overlook on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Singletrack trail with occasional roots and rocks. Beautiful greenery and lush canopy acts as a great shade from the sun the whole way. Trail stops and turns around before the grass and other greenery becomes pretty thick and overgrown. Distance marked is for the whole round trip.
