MP 213, Fishers Peak Loop

This moderate 2.24-mile loop trail begins at one of its junctions with the High Meadow Trail. It winds up the side of Fishers Peak through a variety of vegetation. At the lower elevation, the trail follows a stream through mixed pine and hardwoods. Higher up, the blooms of azaleas, mountain laurel and Catawba rhododendron provide a spectacular display in May. They give way to a diverse second growth forest of oak, poplar, maple and sourwood trees. Look for abundant signs of animal life?woodpecker holes, deer tracks, and turkey dust baths.
