Bearwallow Valley Trail

At A Glance


2.5 mi one-way

Difficulty Rating: 2.5
Steepness: Climbs Moderately
Tread Condition: Few Obstacles
Blaze Color: Red


This short trail winds from the picnic shelter up a little ridge on the Blue Ridge Escarpment, through a few switchbacks. It ends at a small viewing platform overlooking a steel tower, and a view out of an electrical transmission line corridor. The view is nice, but I was a bit underwhelmed by the powerlines in the scene.

This trail is located in the Grassy Ridge Access area. For a list of all the trails in that area, see the Grassy Ridge Access trails list page.
