Right at mile marker 431 on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Because Ron Tagliapietra referred to the "tourist trail", I was obliged to wear Tevas to the top. Nice easy walk with no views. No nature trail brochures available, so I can only speculate on what the specific numbered points of interest discussed.
