The Pink Beds Valley sits in a rare Appalachian bog a mile and a half down from the crest of the Blue Ridge Escarpment. This is a great family day hike. The area got its trail name from early settlers who cleared the valley of a slog for farming; a side effect was that local blooms, including pink wildflowers, could be seen from the surrounding mountainsides. The lower, southern portion of the loop can be particularly wet in spots.
