Byron Herbert Reece Access Trail
Formerly known as Blood Mountain Spur Trail
This trail is an access to the Appalachian Trail from the Byron Herbert Reece Memorial. It is fairly steep for about half its length, and provides access to the Appalachian Trail at Flat Rock Gap. Since the trail is entirely within the Blood Mountain Wilderness, the blue trail blazes are widely spaced.
This trail provides access to the Appalachian Trail and Blood Mountain. It features several nice views, better in winter because of foliage and in the spring canopies of mountain laurel . The hike in is mostly climbing Blood Mountain.
