This out-and-back hike on the Appalachian Trail (AT) is one of a few that provide families with spectacular views from atop a ridgeline. Your hiking destination is a large rock outcropping that hangs on the western ridge—a perfect place to bask in the warm afternoon sun. The stacked metamorphic boulders boast climbing routes with various degrees of challenge and multiple flat spots to sit on and enjoy a picnic while taking in the excellent views of the valley below, including Greenbrier Lake. The trailhead is at the western edge of the parking lot on the highway.
