You can make this a one way or round trip, depending on your energy level. But as with any one way hike you ahve to coordinate parking and transport back. I have always done this as a roundtrip. I ahve started at both Keys Gap and Balckburn. If starting at Blackburn be prepared for a steep 1/4 climib to get your blood flowing. Once you reach the top, it is a pretty easy 'walk in the woods.' Nothing too strenuous.

Getting Started

You can start this hike at either Keys Gap or at the AT Blackburn Trail Center. Keys Gap parking is on RT 9 just befor ethe West Virginia border. Parking for Blackburn is up a dirt road maintained by the AT folks. (Google the exact directions)
