    Roger Barthelet reviewed Unicoi Gap and Indian Grave Gap Loop

    29 days ago

    This was a nice moderate 5.3 miler that was definitely an enjoyable hike. The first mile into it was a steady uphill climb. Not strenuous but just relentless. Once on the top, the rest was pretty easy. The weather was cool but sunny. Truly a great day to be on the trails. Although there were the ever present bear warnings, we didn't see anything but a couple of squirrels. The scenic views were very nice.

    This is definitely a moderate to easy family and pet friendly trail. There are some somewhat steep sections but nothing really intense. Unfortunately for us, we chose an overcast foggy day to hike this trail. After hiking to the scenic summit, we could only see the fog. We will have to pick a better day for this one.next time. Good day for exercise, but not for pics. There were only a few places where you would be able to get a scenic look if it wasn't fogged in.

    This is a good case of what you see is what you get. No surprises on this easiest of easy hikes. We combined the falls hike .7 miles at the end of the lake. The falls were pretty nice.

    Roger Barthelet reviewed Blood Mountain and Freeman Loop Trail

    29 days ago

    This was a tremendously enjoyable hike that was rocky at times but provided a wonderful scenic overlook. The hike was not overly strenuous but would up your cardio in places. Although the trail is dog friendly, it could be tough for small dogs. They would need to be lifted over some of the larger rocks. As others have noted, the Freeman trail was sparsely traveled, but the Appalachian Trail on a Saturday afternoon was a steady stream of hikers. We hiked the Freeman Trail first and then looped back on the Appalachian Trail. Unfortunately, we were hiking against the steady flow of AT hikers.
