Humpback Rocks

Humpback Rocks is a set of nice rock formations that gives a great reward with a little bit of effort.  The parking area is off of the Blue Ridge Parkway.  There is a short, but steep rocky trail that leads to the summit, for those looking for the quickest route.  I took a blue-blazed trail that connects to the AT.  Go north on the AT until you reach a sign for the rocks.  I then took the main trail down completing the loop.  There is also a visitors center at Humpback Rocks, with some cultural displays.
