An easy, scenic, crazy nice stretch of singletrack with tons of good views along the edge of Doughton Park.

Description

The Bluff Mountain Trail is a 7-ish mile segment of the Mountain to Sea Trail in Doughton Park along the Blue Ridge Parkway. This is the easiest trail in Doughton Park and the one with the most views. The only really challenging section is the short switchback ascent up the Alligators Back, but it's still pretty tame compared to the rest of the trails in the park that descend the entire mountain. Use this trail to link up the other trails and get some solid mountain hiking in at this gem of a park.
