This 3.3-mile trail offers views of Lake Blue Ridge after cresting the mountaintop. A very pleasant hike or bicycle ride, including running alongside the shoreline of Lake Blue Ridge. The forest is made up of a variety of southern Appalachian hardwood. The trail begins on the east side of Aska Road at Deep Gap and starts as a gradual climb toward the summit of Green Mountain. On the trail there are five short, relatively steep ascents, but they are not demanding. The Green Mountain ridge provides an overview of Charlie's Cove of Lake Blue Ridge. The trail then descends for 2.4 miles to its end on FS 711.
Directions: From Blue Ridge travel 1.5 miles east on E. First Street to Aska Road. Go south on Aska Road 4.4 miles to Deep Gap. Park in the parking area on the west side below the gap.
