E.B. Jeffress Park Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"One of the Blue Ridge Parkway’s best self-guiding interpretive trails and a number of historic structures make E. B. Jeffress Park a truly worthwhile stop for hikers.

One of the Parkway’s smallest roadside recreation areas (600 acres) memorializes E. B. Jeffress, the 1933 chairman of the North Carolina State Highway and Public Works Commission who helped route the Parkway through North Carolina rather than Tennessee. Descriptions of the following trails are included: Cascades Trail and Tompkins Knob Trail."
