Ascent Trip Report

An easy walk to an unranked peak with unforgettable views. Don't be a tourist and settle for the overlook just down the steps from the parking lot. Instead, follow the Chestoa View Trail (0.6-mile loop) to the summit, which has spectacular views eastward across the Linville Gorge to Table Rock and beyond.

Chestoa View is at Milepost 320.8 on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
