The 3.2 mile Kennedy Ridge Trail is a scenic trail following a ridgetop through mountain laurel and rhododendron. It features several openings that provide excellent views of the valley below. This area was named after President John F. Kennedy and his brother Robert Kennedy because of the interest the two took in the mountain people. In 1999, Robert Kennedy's daughter wrote a television documentary about the locals and their way of life.
