Trail Overview

This trail starts off Blue Ridge Parkway near Horse Trail Gap and Hewat Overlook in the Pisgah National Forest. The Gap and nearby overlooks offer breathtaking views at sunrise and sunset. It is a fairly easy trail that offers a chance to get off the tarmac and explore the wilderness nearby. The trail runs beside a small fishing stream in a hunting area. Riders can expect to hear gunshots. Camping is allowed in federal lands. Ashville town is nearby and offers wonderful fall colors.

Trail was mud-less even after 3 days of rain. A handful of rocks a few inches tall, but simple drive.
