Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"This truly unique section of the Appalachian Trail along Roan Mountain is known for the famous rhododendron gardens, just steps away from the trail.

This hike winds up from Carvers Gap, giving you a superlative view with little effort from Roan High Knob, and then continuing past the ruins of the historic Cloudland Hotel to the rhododendron gardens and out to Roan High Bluff, for unparalleled views into North Carolina, virtually all along a ridgetop or knob. Does it get any better?"
