Craggy Gardens is one of the top overlooks on the Blue Ridge Parkway, and it usually has a lot of rhododendrons this time of year. Today I led a pretty big group up there to hike two easy trails: Craggy Pinnacle and Craggy Gardens. We hiked about 3.5 miles in all. But sadly, the rhododendrons were not that good.
