Gwinn Ridge Trail

Gwinn Ridge Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This trail oozes solitude. If you are looking to escape the crowds on a busy weekend or simply enjoy a private commune with nature, this is the hike for you. Gwinn Ridge is a lonely mountain north of Hinton around which the New River flows, dividing Brooks Falls from Sandstone Falls. However, you will be walking hundreds of feet above the New River, traversing woods transitioning from fields where a hardscrabble farm once existed. The interface between meadow and forest makes for ample wildlife viewing. A keen eye will also spot relics from the days when Gwinn Ridge was inhabited."
