The paved 0.3-mile Spirit Ridge Trail, perfect for wheelchairs and strollers, leads to a spectacular overlook along the Cherohala Skyway in the Nantahala National Forest.
Layers of mountain ranges greet you from the perch just below 5,000 feet. Along the path are three signs that explain the northern hardwood forest, tell the American chestnut story and describe a history of transportation. Two picnic tables are neart the parking area.
From Robbinsville, take US 129N, turn left onto NC 143W and go 10 miles to Cherohala Skyway. Follow the skyway for eight miles to the trail's parking area.
