Highest point on the Blue Ridge Parkway. Let's just say it is a drive up. Car, bike, motorcycles. There will be a lot of them there.
From Richland Gap on the BRP, head south the well marked pull off on the left. Great views to the SW, West and NW into the Smokies and the Plott Balsam Mountains. If you want to hike this route, take the trail south from the summit of Richard Balsam and cross the the BRP just a few hundred yards from this HP.
When we arrived there were flower lovers, hikers, burly bikers, family picnickers, and BRP car travelers. Best quote I heard was "we can't get any higher man". Oh yes you can....
