Hiked many trails on many continents and this is my favorite trail of the Appalachians. Good water access for backpacking, great views (probably the best views on the blue ridge) on the balds. Good history at Cold Mountain. Also easy access to graveyard fields.

Easy bike trail for beginners or kids. Beautiful hiking along the Davidson River. Located close to the Ranger Station, at the entrance to the Davidson River Campground
Swimming holes along the way, access to fishing spots as well
Decent parking but no bathroom.

Absolutely beautiful place. I love coming here, there's no other spot like it in the area where you can hike to craggy, open panoramic mountain views. Unfortunately it can get a bit crowded at times. Great camping nearby. Please practice LNT (Leave No Trace) principles when out in public lands.

We actually picked up this trail at the sports complex at the sports complex in Brevard. I erm it a very easy nice ride. We rode into town and then back out to the campground in the Pisgah Forest. Our total ride was just over 13 miles we really enjoyed it.

Very nice but difficult trail. Have only hiked a small portion of the trail. There are many steep places on this trail.

I a shorter 4.5 mile loop on this trail, following two days of heavy rains. Not the best time to go. Much of the trail still had standing water and lots of mud. The portion from the parking lot was pretty rocky so the combination made for tricking footing and slower progress. Still, it was a worthwhile trail with some decent views.

We love this trail. Some of the best hiking in the area and the views are amazing. One a clear day you have 360 degree views.

Open vistas can be hard to find but the Art Loeb/Black Balsam Knob areas are loaded! I love being able to see 100 miles on a clear day! Several peaks over 6000 feet provide some challenge. But I'm 64 and made it easy! On day hikes, take cheese and wine! Ahhh.

This trail is not for the faint of heart or shortness of breath as it traverses 3 peaks over 6,000 feet and ends atop Cold Mountain, another peak over 6,000. Plus many more ups and downs along the way. It probably should not be attempted in one outing as it gets tough and stays tough, but there are wilderness camping spots along the way. When you get to the end at Cold Mountain, you have to walk back out so it is truly much longer than advertized.
