The trail begins at the Blue Ridge Overlook. The rock areas are called catoctin greenstone. Note the natural “gardens” along the rock faces and crevices. During the spring, small flowered phacelia and saxifrage, white flowers in the rock crevices, are in full bloom blanketing many parts of the trail. Bird watching and views of Pond Hollow and Fortunes Ridge are the treats of this rocky-footed hike. Use caution in winter.
