From a popular roadside viewpoint, a quiet path leads away to a nearby flat-topped knoll with a few good views. Before hiking the longer trail, take the short, steep descent on stone steps to Chestoa View, a clifftop semicircular rock outlook with a dramatic drop to the North Cove Valley. The square-topped crag of Table Rock on the horizon marks the crest of the Linville Gorge. Below, US 221 can be seen heading down to nearby Linville Caverns (North Carolina’s only commercial cavern—open year-round), Marion, North Carolina, and I-40.

good trail. the best echoes of the whole trip. it is on the blueridge parkway and is a fairly easy hike around the .8 mile loop. i got a lot of good flower and insect pictures. i also saw lots of mushrooms.
