The Art Loeb Trail

A view from the Art Loeb Trail in the Shining Rock Wilderness. This 30 mile trail starts in the lower elevations of Pisgah National forest and climbs to it's termination on the 6000 foot Cold Mountain. It showcases the bio-diversity that is unique to the North Carolina mountains. It begins in a southern hardwood forest and ends in a boreal forest that is more commonly seen in southern Canada. The views along the way are breath-taking, making this one of the top ten hikes in the North Carolina mountains.
