We hiked the segment beginning at the parking area near the intersection with the Blue Ridge Parkway and highway 215, northwest of Brevard, N.C. This section begins near Black Balsam Knob and ends at a Boy Scout Camp. Some easy, gradual climbs along the ridgeline with various rocky, steep inclines along the way. Great panoramic views of the Shining Rock Wilderness and vistas from open balds.
Parking area for hikers is just off the Blue Ridge Parkway, near the intersection of highway 215. Public bathrooms were open at parking area.
