Cross Mountain Hike

Cross Mountain Hike Professional Review and Guide

"This Appalachian Trail hike starts above bucolic Shady Valley. Th e highlights come early as you trace the AT across the open fi elds of the old Osborne Farm. Here, far-reaching views extend to Holston Mountain into Shady Valley and Iron Mountain then beyond into the Virginia Highlands. Th e gently rising track enters woods after a mile, roaming Cross Mountain. Make your way to Double Spring Shelter, an AT accommodation set in a hollow on Holston Mountain, before backtracking."

"The first 0.5 mile of this Appalachian Trail (A.T.) hike is for everybody (including those in wheelchairs), a universal access pathway over a view-laden meadow. The highlights come early as you trace the A.T. across the open fields of the old Osborne Farm. Here, far-reaching panoramas stretch north into Shady Valley and beyond into the Virginia highlands."
