View Topo Map


This trail is 3 miles in one direction. Again, another gnarly Pisgah-area trail! This trail has several awesome views off the top of the ridge of Looking Glass mountain. Absolutely incredible--be sure to bring your camera! The awesome views go hand in hand with the first section of "Satan's Staircase," a very steep climb. Also, there is a meadow on top of the ridge that has almost completely overgrown the trail. Not so much fun having to gingerly pick your way through all of the thorn bushes.
Trail length: 3 miles
