Case Camp Ridge Trail #119
1.7 mi - Difficult - This is a strenuous trail that climbs 1,000 feet in elevation in less than two miles. Near the beginning of the trail you will climb moderately before passing through a forest management area. This is a shelterwood cut that was completed in 1991. From here the trail becomes steep, and provides excellent wintertime views of the surrounding mountains. The effects of chestnut blight are well illustrated: Chestnut stumps, a reminder of a once magnificent chestnut forest, are seen throughout the hike. The trail terminates on the Blue Ridge Parkway near Cherry Cove Overlook.
Approximate Elevation Change: 1000 feet
