Snowball Trail

Snowball Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"During spring and summer, you are more likely to find a giant white pine, a sudden and stunning mountain view, or a burst of colorful wildflowers than you are to find a snowball on this hike. But at this high elevation, in late fall or winter, balls of snow are very possible.

The trail also makes a good hike in the colder months when all the thick leaves have fallen and mountain views appear as you walk across the ridgeline. However, the Blue Ridge Parkway is often closed to vehicle traffic during winter, so this trail is usually not accessible then."
