Route Description


This route is about as easy as they come in terms of the Appalachian Trail. The route is basically a very nice ridge-walk with a few ups and downs. You'll gain probably about two hundred feet round trip in total. Winter, with snow on the ground would be the best time to hike the route because the man-eating rocks won't kill your boots:) But otherwise, the trail provides some fine scrubby views south and north to the fertile valleys below. The total distance of the trip is four miles, being two miles each way and is a nice walk in the woods with great views south from Table Rock.

Essential Gear


Comfortable hiking boots, trekking pole, snack/water, and a camera.
