trail_hike_comments: This is the third-longest trail in the Appalachian District, after the Appalachian Trail and Mountains to Sea Trail. The trail runs through stands of red spruce and Fraser fir, with views of 6,000 foot peaks. Camping is possible near Commissary Hill and Maple Camp Bald. Note that the trail switchbacks heavily below Maple Camp Bald and pay close attention to the trail signs and blazes because the trail crosses open fields and many intersections., trail_bike_comments: None
