This is an aggressive 3.2 mile hike that starts in a valley off of the Big Run Portal Trail
. The trail literally follows the ridge from the beginning all the way up to the Skyline Drive. It is only near the 3/4 section does it actually utilizes a few switchbacks during it's 1600' elevation climb. The trail ends just north of the Loft Mountain Wayside parking lot and can be added to other local trails to provide a loop if desired.
