Several nice viewpoints along a figure-8 loop that starts on the Appalachian Trail in High Point State Park and returns on the Iris trail, an easy woods road.
Mileage: 9.1 miles. Very rocky start on the AT but moderate after that; a couple of minor steep areas, mostly rolling elevation changes. There are several nice viewpoints along this figure-8 loop. (The loop could be done in the opposite direction, but then the easier trail would be in the beginning.)
