Abstract:
The National Park Service has recently over the Linville Falls area and has stationed a ranger at the falls. A number of trails run off the ridge and into the gorge below the falls. Davis describes one of them, the Pine Gap Trail, which is not for the faint of heart, because it is a trail more in name than in actual fact. It is a plunging trail, not for walking, but for slithering and sliding and grasping at whatever your hands can find. At the bottom, though, it becomes somewhat easier for the walk to the falls.
