    This is NOT an easy trail and not recommended for out and back. After leaving Farr Gap you enter Wilderness and a steep drop - 40% grade - you don't want to hike up this trail. Great way to get to Slick Rock Creek and beautiful camping spots. Good for multi day trip to Yellow Hammer Gap, Nichols Cove, Big Fat Gap to Hangover, Bob Bald and Beech Gap. It was part of the Benton Mackaye Trail but BMT was rerouted because of the dangerous crossing (at high water events) at Slick Rock Creek.

    The trail begins at Beech Gap off the Cherohala Skyway. There is limited parking at Beech Gap (DON'T block the gate). More parking is available a short way down the Skyway on the NC side at Unicoi Crest Overlook. From Beech Gap head down the gated road to the north to Cold Springs Gap (1.8 miles). Here several trails intersect at this point. Take Trail 54A on the right, the Bob Bald Connector. This is the new route for the Benton MacKaye Trail. Follow 54A steeply uphill to the intersection with the Stratton Bald Trail #54, 1.2 miles from Cold Springs Gap. Turn right on #54 and follow it to the top of Bob Bald (0.5 miles from intersection of #54A and #54. The trails through the bald are indistinct but go generally east toward the huge spruce trees. The trail becomes distinct just to the left of the spruces. You can turn around at this point or continue to Naked Ground and the Hangover.
