    We did this trail from the Cades Cove Picnic Area to Anthony's Creek to Rote Mountain to the AT.

    Rocky Top is amazing, Thunderhead is less so but still a beautiful view. This is a worthwhile, 14-mile hike. The mountain laurel and flame azaleas are starting to bloom. Raspberry bushes and blueberry bushes are common on the AT before Rocky Top.

    Beautiful hike. If you park at the Murphy Road lot, you have to cross over the road, head north on the winding stair trail, up the AT, and pass the sign for Snow Bird Gap, to come to a grassy clearing, to hike up to Silers' Bald. The views are well worth it. you can take the spur trail to the Silers' Bald Shelter, y
    take a break, then continue from the shelter on the other side of the Silers' Bald Shelter trail to reach the actual Silers' Bald final approach. You'll see a granite market at the top.

    Excellent hike. You will probably need to split this trail up in to two days. Multiple beautiful peaks and strenuous hiking.

    McCrae Peak is beautiful and lots of great scenery. Watch out for the ice on part of the trail right before McCrae Peak.

    You could have called this switch back trail with roots and slick rocks. It's a challenging hike. Wear Bugspray because you'll have to walk through high grass and the sand fleas/bugs at the top are in full effect. You will start itching within a few minutes of getting to the top platform.

    The views are impressive. I needed three hours up, 30 mins at the top, and two hours back to the campground lot. I was moving pretty aggressively. Bring lots of Gatorade, water, and chocolate.
