Hike to Wind Rock

0.5 Miles Round Trip - 400 ft gain - Out-and-Back Trail

Wind Rock Trailhead - Search Nearby - Added by Jake Sells

Hike a spur off the Appalachian Trail to a rocky outcrop that overlooks the Mountain Lake Wilderness with great views. 

At the parking lot cross the gravel road to the trail head that starts at a map posted on the edge of the road. Hike a quick quarter-mile where you'll turn left to a large rocky outcrop with views of the blueridge. You'll pass a campsite with fire ring before the rocky outcrop and overlook. I've also heard this is a great place to watch the sunset, something to checkout very soon.
