This is a difficult one way trail in Pisgah National Forest.

There are a number of other hike combinations available with this hike, such as descending at Farlow Gap to the Daniel Ridge area, or continuing on the Art Loeb Trail up to the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Getting Started

The hike begins at Gloucester Gap, which is the intersection of gravel roads. There is very little parking available, so minimizing vehicles is advised.
