A classic leg-stretcher with a little up and down to a secluded stone observation platform atop rocks you should definitely not be “jumping off.” The view is expansive—and illustrative. Summer foliage softens the evidence of increasing timber harvesting, development, and second-home construction. The National Park Service and private organizations such as the Blue Ridge Parkway Foundation and Friends of the Blue Ridge Parkway are attempting to influence the future of surrounding lands.
