Island in the Sky Trail

Island in the Sky Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This is a short hike through a rhododendron thicket to rocky cliff tops and around the base of the cliffs. The park road passes by Glade Grist Mill on the way to the trailhead. From the perches of Island in the Sky Trail to the cascading Glade Creek, Babcock State Park is a hiker’s treasure. Photographers focus on Glade Creek Grist Mill.

Anglers drift flies down the creek hoping to entice a hungry trout. From the moment you get out of your car at the parking area, Island in the Sky Trail is an interesting hike. This area is beautiful in early summer when the trail is bright with the pastel pinks of new flowers. Special attractions: Clifftop views."
