Of the three ways up to Beech Mountain, this is the longest if you count the Valley Trail on which you must first hike. It is also the most architecturally fascinating, with its carefully laid stone steps. Highlights: Climb up switchbacks and stone steps to Beech Mountain and its fire tower and views.
