Big Firescald Loop

Big Firescald Loop Professional Review and Guide

"This loop is set in the Shelton Laurel Backcountry of the Pisgah National Forest. Th e Jerry Miller Trail takes you to a 100-foot waterslide before opening onto Whiteoak Flats meadow. Ascend to the Appalachian Trail. Walk the stony knife-edge delineating North Carolina and Tennessee. Incredible 360-degree views appear from atop Big Firescald Knob, a half mile of continuous outcrops opening into the Tar Heel State and the Volunteer State. A steep trip down Fork Ridge takes you back to the trailhead."
