This is a quintessential Parkway leg-stretcher trail. Great views of Wigwam Falls combine with an interesting exhibit about the logging railroads that carried off the region’s virgin timber. Blue Ridge Parkway interpretive trails impart an amazing sense of how people affected the mountain environment. If you open yourself to the insights, you’ll start noticing the remains of old cabin sites and stone walls where you’d least expect them. This hike will change the way you look at trails wherever you hike in the eastern United States.
