This short section of the longer Art Loeb trail climbs from the Daniel Boone Boy Scout Camp on the Little East Fork of the Pigeon River, up to Deep Gap on the ridge between Shining Rock and Cold Mountain. It's steep, with A spur trail leads to the summit of Cold Mountain from there, which tops out at over 6000 ft. in elevation. Since it is entirely within Congressionally-designated wilderness, you will find no signs or trail blazes. Be prepared to practice map reading and compass skills.
