The majesty of the Appalachian trail unfolds all around you as you climb to the Black Rock cliffs. 

Park on White Oak road to access the trailhead for this magnificent hike. Be sure to wear sturdy hiking boots--the trail is rocky at parts and there are streams to cross. Accessible February-November.
