This short loop hike along a rushing mountain stream is a twenty-minute leg-stretcher that might tempt you to tarry a bit longer. The paved treadway soon becomes gravel as it meanders right and down over water bars and log steps. Flame azalea and rhododendron bloom on this stretch of Parkway near Tompkins Knob as the Blue Ridge Plateau climbs into North Carolina. You’ll see the Parkway’s pioneer cabins and structures everywhere (most often on the trails in this book) and even “meet” some of the people who lived in them.
