Black Balsam Knob High Loop

Black Balsam Knob High Loop Professional Review and Guide

"Black Balsam Knob is a favorite destination of many Western North Carolina hikers. For sure, the views from there and from Tennent Mountain are arguably some of the best in the Southeast. You will see for yourself on this loop hike: it follows the narrow Ivestor Gap dirt road to the Shining Rock boundary and then loops back to the parking lot on the most dramatic and scenic section of the Art Loeb Trail."
