Trail shared by Brandon Thrower

A mild backcountry trail that leads to some epic views of Grandfather Mountain and massive cliffs.

Features Fall Colors · Views · Wildflowers

Family Friendly Though the terrain can be technical for younger family members, those with older kids will enjoy the great views and sense of accomplishment.

Description

This trail starts near the top of Pineola Road and is a short trip, but the views from the cliffs are totally worth it. The trail is mildly technical and has a bit of elevation change, but nothing too crazy.
