#1 Profile Trail
Banner Elk, NC
2.8 mi 4.4 km Banner Elk, NC
All Clear
Update
Muddy, Icy - particularly on the steep strenuous part of trail ice completely covers the rocks as it is not heating up enough to melt. on the lower section snowfall melts rather quickly turning the trail fairly muddy. Still doable just may need to watch footing at times.
