See why today as we ascend to the rocky overlook southbound on the Appalachian Trail from Thornton Gap on Rt.211. After ogling the view and passing several other viewpoints, we turn on the Meadow Springs Trail and then the Hazel Mtn. Trail. From the latter, moderate hikers take the Catlett Spur and Hannah Run Trails to the Pinnacles Overlook on the Skyline Drive. Long hikers reach the overlook via a longer route on the Catlett Mtn. and Hannah Run Trails,
