Good uphill hike. Lots of roots and rocks. Good exploring.
We traveled up to the AT marker and back for a day hike. Steep. It's a constant uphill experience with plenty of rocks, roots, and snails. Trail is narrow but clear and maintained. Props to the people carrying chainsaws up there! Great workout. One nice overlook and the creek with the bridge is nice. I definitely plan to do more trails around the Cosby campground.
Steep, narrow, rocky, up-hill all the way. Nice view about mid-way up. Impressive change of flora and climate along the way.
