This variety-filled hike starts at a quiet mountain lake then leads through remote woods to reach the Appalachian Trail (A.T.). A trek over knobs and through gaps leads to Preaching Rock, a stone slab on the slope of Big Cedar Mountain, opening to highlands in the near distance and southeast to the Piedmont.
