Great hike for fall. It’s a long climb and pretty strenuous, but some great views along the way. Note: we hiked on 11/16/2019 and there was a significant washout/treefall west of Chimney Top mountain. The hikearound was steep and slippery and we both fell a little, but it is passable. We skipped the walk to the top of Brasstown Bald as it was heaving with people on a lovely Saturday.
