    Grassy Gap is a wide trail, but several wet creek crossings. Bluff Ridge is a steep climb but beautiful views.

    Second time doing this hike. You can go counter clockwise and have the views towards the end of the hike or go clockwise and get to Slate Rock near the beginning. We went counter clockwise both times. That direction provides a cardio climb over 600ft then you level off towards the lookout. Slate Rock views are awesome. Many people hike to Slate Rock clockwise and return same way. Depends on your fitness level. Parking area is about 6.6 miles on right from where the gravel forest road begins.

    Beautiful hike with lots of laurel and rhododendron. Distance might be an issue for some hikers, but I would in no way rate this as difficult. Relatively little elevation change.

    Short easy path around the lake, paved and quiet.

    We took the shuttle to the top so we mostly only had to hike down. It was beautiful but the rock steps can be difficult to maneuver around. Not recommended for anyone with knee issues.

    Super short and easy trail but beautiful waterfall and little hidden gem. It was quiet and secluded. Very different form the main hikes at Linville Falls.

    A nice, short hike off the Blue Ridge Parkway. The entire way is on a gravel carriage road that is closed to vehicles. The woods have grown up around the summit tower, but there are still distant views over the treetops. The trail passes through large open fields which reminded me of England. Rated three stars because of crowds.

    Hiked on 10-7-18. Was hoping for more fall color but it is a little later this year. Hiked this same hike a few years back on first Friday of October and colors were at peak. Easy hike. Mostly flat. Very muddy after any rain at all. A lot of secondary trails have been made by hikers to go around the bigger mud holes. Falls had much less water on this trip compared to a few years back. Can get crowded on weekends. I hiked out to falls about 4:30 PM and passed more people than I could even count who were returning from the falls. When I arrived there were only two couples at the base and a few people above the falls. Within 10 minutes they were all gone and I had it to myself.
