Our latest “Field Research” is up on Breadcrumbs: check out Grandfather Mountain State Park’s Profile trail. The trail is beautiful this time of year, and would make a good, cool summer hike too (on a clear day) thanks to its elevation. You can view the details and download the track on its Breadcrumbs page.
One thing that surprised me about this trail? There’s actually a (very) small waterfall near the beginning of the trail, as it crosses Shanty Branch. This isn’t mentioned on any of the trail descriptions I’ve seen, but I think it’s pretty, and photogenic!
As always, this is just a preliminary map and we’ll be vetting this information more before putting it up on the sites (as we plan on doing for all of Grandfather Mountains State Park). Enjoy!
