Description

Climbs steeply from the parking area at the end of Suwannee Drive to the West Ridge trail. Passes through switchbacks in places; some spots require rock scrambling where the trail passes directly over outcrops. Passes through the ridge's eponymous pine forests near the summit. There is an excellent view of Black Mountain and the Swannanoa Valley from an overlook called Rattlesnake Rock near the top of the trail.
