This hike is fairly short and easy. The view from the top is beautiful. Everyone enjoyed the hike even the kids!

wear your hiking shoes, have a camera, and binoculars. we bring a blanket if its towards dusk, as the sunsets are spectacular. when the rhodies are bloomimg, its a site to behold. in the fall, the colors, again, are beautiful.

I love this place. It lives up to it's name of Craggy Gardens. The trail is covered in rhododendron. We were a little early for the true bloom but hopefully will catch it next time. The Parkway is closed for that area now but I am sure they will have it open soon.
