Hikes That Use This Trail: Graybeard Mountain

Description

Short path near the summit of the ridge to the summit of Walker's Knob with a fantastic view south and west of Montreat, Black Mountain and the Swannanoa Valley. Has a few rocks and roots, and a small climb at the end, but it is overall very easy. Worth the side trip if you're on the way to Graybeard, or a worthy destination itself for a shorter hike from the Graybeard trailhead. Use caution at the overlook - there are some significant drop-offs along the cliffs.
