    This trail was awesome in a lot of ways! Crazy good steep right at the beginning to get the heart pumping.. ridge line running quick up and downs.. some blown out mud avalanche section to circumnavigate,, followed by people, lots of them! On top and a museum too. Great day. Was quick

    I tracked this hike from the top down only. From the bottom, the first hill up to the ridge is all switchbacks so it moderates the impact of the elevation gain. Once up on the ridge it is beautiful. Feb 2018. There is a quarter mike section of a lot of rhody blowdowns and one large red oak to navigate around. Leftover from the December ice storm. I really enjoyed the views along the ridge. Views from the top of course are amazing.

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.
