This hike is WAY off the beaten path. Awesome views. Narrow trails. Lots of rocks. Cycles up and down. We did the old Appalachian trial upper loop last year. Let’s finish this.

We will need to shuttle from the kid’s ski slopes and take 2 cars to the trailhead at Blue Ridge Overlook, which is on Devils Knob Loop.  This is half of the big loop around the resort which is close to Reid’s Gap and Humpback Rocks.

The route follows Devils’ Knob to Fortune’s Ridge, Peddlar’s Edge and finally Cedar Cliffs.  This takes longer than the miles suggest. Your knees will get a workout.

The return time is approximate.  If you have plans that require you to be back in Richmond at a specific time, please communicate this prior to carpooling with someone, or consider choosing a different hike. 

Optional stop for dinner/drinks at Blue Mountain Brewery the way back if there is interest.
