Daniel Ridge Loop

Daniel Ridge Loop

  • Distance: 4 Miles RT (discrepancy with Ramblr mileage)
  • Elevation Change: 827 feet
  • Difficulty: Moderate

This trail is easy to get to in winter months when the parkway is closed.

The trail begins on a gravel road for the first .1 mile, crossing a new “bridge to nowhere” then forks left at a carsonite sign.

The trail follows the creek for the first half of the loop, passing waterfalls and several campsites. Continuing on the loop around the 3.5 mile point where an old forest road crosses the trail. Daniel Ridge Falls is a few hundred feet to the left down the forest road. It is well worth the detour.

Best of Trail: Easy Access

Worst of Trail: Hot in Summer Months
