Activity Highlights

Black Balsam Knob is an exhilarating trail running tour suitable for runners with a basic level of fitness. Clearcut by loggers in the early 1900’s, these high mountain peaks offer dramatic 360-degree views atop their 6000′ summits. The 5 - 6 mile route includes a mixture of old railroad logging paths and rugged singletrack. Consider planning this trip around the sunrise or sunset, and expect you may hike a few of the more technical sections.
