Richland Balsam (6,410 ft)

The park folder seemed to indicate that the trail started at the parkway highpoint but of course Ron Tagliapietra's report was correct that it started at the previous pullout with nature trail sign. There were no brochures and I'm not sure the trail has been cleared this year. The return loop does lead past the top of the cliff just above the highpoint sign so rock climbers could make a short cut here.
