Hiking the Blue Ridge Parkway

This a beautiful hike. We hiked this trail a few times last fall as the trees were changing color, and it was amazing. There were so many paik leaves just floating down from the mountain that gave this place an truly mesmerizing aura. Because of the hurricanes from years past all of this trail has been washed out, so most of the trail is on the river bed. Ankle supportive hiking shoes are a must. Just look for the man-made trail markers along the way to the waterfalls.
Update: Work of caution, the north side of this hike that leads up to "green pond" is quite a hike. Be preparred to take a few rests, stay hydrated and nourished.
Also, green pond should be renamed "green sludge," so a filtration system and MSR sweetwater (or equivalent) is must. Keep an eye out for black bears as well.
