We hiked this trail by accident. we were actually trying to find another trail head and finally gave up and decided we'd do the trail we could find which ended up being the AT Approach. we only did about 5.5 miles in and then 5.5 miles back as we got a late start. we really enjoyed this trail and two weeks later decided to go back and do another trail that meets up with this one (Len Foote Trail I believe it is called). great shade cover and a decent amount of elevation change so it feels challenging in both directions. we hiked this trail on Saturday 7/28/18.
