The Art Loeb Trail is a Carolina icon. This hike traces the famed path through its most lofty heights while traversing Shining Rock Ledge within the Shining Rock Wilderness. Begin the loop on the Ivestor Gap Trail, traveling a level railroad grade for 4 miles through meadows and spruce-fir forest. Your return route takes the famed Art Loeb Trail through a series of ridgetop undulations where the views are nearly nonstop, passing view after view from rocky points, grassy hillsides, and meadows.
