This hike begins with aggressive accent to Beech Gap. This flat field will provide a nice shady spot for a well-earned break. Continue on BMT to Laurel Gap Shelter, which offers a picnic table and water source for a nice lunch spot. Return to the BMT and turn right for an easy grade to Luftee Knob. From here it is an easy ridge walk to the AT. On a clear day you will have views of Mount. Cammerer (little white spot on a cleared peak). Turn left on the AT and .02 miles turn left to shelter. Day 2 will provide an easy return using the same route. Depending on your level this maybe completed as a day hike.

L'approche de Beech Gap est raide. Balsam Mt Trail est long et agréable à l'AT.
