This trail is 3 miles in one direction. Again, another gnarly Pisgah-area trail! This trail has several awesome views off the top of the ridge of Looking Glass mountain. Absolutely incredible--be sure to bring your camera! The awesome views go hand-in-hand with the first section of "Satan's Staircase," a steep hike-a-bike that will require you to shoulder your rig. I would NOT want to ride down it, so I recommend riding this trail Southeast to Northwest. Also, there is a meadow on top of the ridge that has almost completely overgrown the trail. Not so much fun having to gingerly pick your way through all of the thorn bushes.
