Big Ridge State Park-Sharps Station Loop

Big Ridge State Park-Sharps Station Loop Professional Review and Guide

"Tread the back reaches of Big Ridge State Park on this trek. Follow old settler roads on the Big Valley Trail, topping Pinnacle Ridge. Pass the Langley Cemetery before scaling Big Ridge.

From there, drop steeply to the shores of Norris Lake, where you visit a monument commemorating one of the first settlements west of the Appalachians. Your return route leads steeply up Big Ridge and past Indian Rock, with a winter view. Cruise a high bluff before backtracking to the trailhead."
