Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Begin at Loft Mountain Campground, just past milepost 79 on Skyline Drive. Take the short side trail to the A.T. that begins just south of the ranger’s residence and camp store. The campground has supplies, a laundromat, a phone, and showers. At the junction with the A.T., turn right and begin a moderate ascent of Big Flat Mountain, as you circle clockwise around the campground near the summit (elevation 3,387').

Concrete posts at mile 0.6 and mile 1.1 indicate side trails that lead to the campground. Reach a third concrete post 0.2 mile later that marks the 0.3-mile trail heading to the Loft Mountain Amphitheater. In 0.5 mile, you will reach an outstanding 360° view of Rockytop, Brown Mountain, Rocky Mountain, Rocky Mount, and to the far right—east of Skyline Drive—Loft Mountain."
