This challenging circuit travels through the Pisgah National Forest’s Shelton Laurel Backcountry. The Jerry Miller Trail first leads past an impressive and long 100-foot waterfall, then reaches the former meadow of Whiteoak Flats. A steady climb takes you near Baxter Cliff before joining the AT and Big Firescald Ridge, the protruding knife-edge rock rampart dividing North Carolina and Tennessee. Panoramic 360-degree views extend to distant horizons.
