If you are looking to stretch your legs a bit from a long Blue Ridge Parkway Ride , this is the trail for you. At milepost 308.2 off the Blue Ridge Parkway the Flat Rock Trail is a self guiding loop trail that walks you up a slight incline towards the flat rock that opens up into a beautiful view of grandfather country club golf course, beautiful blue ridge mountains in the distance and grandfather mountain to your right hand side.

Great panoramic view for video and pictures..also a great place that is quiet for a picnic.


  • Bring your camera or video recorder for the panoramic view
  • Water Bottle
  • Hiking Shoes, but sneakers are ok on this one
