Johnson Farm via Harkening Hill Professional Review and Guide

"This hike at the Peaks of Otter area of the Blue Ridge Parkway o?ers three distinct pleasures. The Harkening Hill Trail takes you ?rst to a geologically entrancing mount with partial views and Balance Rock.

Then on to historic Johnson Farm, a preserved home replicating local life in the 1930s. Finally, take an easy stroll around Abbott Lake, soaking in water-re?ected vistas of the surrounding mountains."
