We found a nice trail, but not what we were planning on. It seems that this portion of the Blue Ridge Parkway is closed during the winter. We were not discouraged however. From the parking area this trail departs paralleling the Blue Ridge parkway. This time of year, with the leaves off of the trees, the views were fantastic. We did an out and back trip and had a great time. Many other locals use this trail (and the BRP) for walks. Also, for the road cycling enthusiast, the closed BRP is a GREAT adventure without the worries of auto traffic.
