Description

Woody Ridge Trail is the toughest climb in NC. It is unrelenting, technical, and down right AWESOME! Good views can be had from a couple of overlooks. The trail is blazed in yellow. The trailhead is off White Oak Creek Rd near Burnsville, NC. The trail ends at its junction with the Black Mountain Crest Trail near Horse Rock on top of a small bald.

Intense gradient, steep climbs with traverse switchbacks. Short hike, 2 hours. Gnats are gnarly this time (May) bring bug spray and maybe hat w/ net. 2.4mi
