Trail shared by Brandon Thrower

Despite it's name,there are no balds on the trail, but it is a nice climb and can be used to make some good loops.

Description

This trail connect the Blue Ridge Parkway near Blue Ridge Pinnacle Trail and S Toe River Road. It is a good climbing trail and not overly technical. There is not much in the way of views, but in the winter there are some good ones through the trees.
