Located in Craig County, this 5-mile loop offers you a chance to leave everything behind. This singletrack hike begins on the Sulphur Ridge Trail with a quick steep descent along a rocky path to the valley floor where a nice campsite is located and a seasonal creek. From the valley floor, you begin a gradual non-stop climb through lush vegetation until you reach the ridgeline. Then turn onto the Broad Mountain Trail and follow the rocky ridgeline trail back to your starting point.

The upper portion of the trail affords views of surrounding valley and mountains, while the lower portion is through dense, lush vegetation.
