BackpackingGreat!

Trails are generally well indicated by signs at junctions, but overgrown in some places and can become indistinct. Lots of elevation change, which gives cool views, but tough on the legs. Depending on how you decide to break up your trip, water can become an issue- not much water on the ridges. I highly reccomend you buy/find a map on the internet that has the trail numbers & water sources on it.

Incredible views! Nice ridgeline hike almost all the way. The Hangover has some of the best 360° views.

HikingGreat!

Moderate difficulty. Trail starts with a 1.5 mile straight path that looks like a old logging road. It then gets to a part where the trail splits 3 ways. Go to the very right You’ll go up a pretty steep hill for .5 miles. About .25-.5 mile after the hill ends you’ll reach a water source. From there it’s about another .5 to the Bob Stratton Bald. At the bald follow the pine trees to the left and you’ll get on a ridge that takes you toward the hangover. From there, there are a few parts where we almost got lost and went to the wrong direction. The signage from there on is not very good. I suggest using the app or getting a map to follow the trail to the Hangover. There was a group of 15 people hiking there so we had to camp about .25 from the hangover

The views were great. Camped first night at naked ground. Awesome sunrise. Trail is hard. Overgrown in places and steep climbs.

HikingGreat!

Nice little day hike up the first mountain and back! Beautiful drive up to the trailhead right now with all the fall colors. First 1.8 miles is a 1 lane service road which probably would have bummed me out if it weren’t for the pretty trees. Went to scope out the area to see if it would be good for backpacking and I am totally coming back for a longer trip! Note - the trail head is a tiny pull off area with not a lot of parking room.

This was an amazing trail. It had all the goods, views, waterfalls, and good ups and downs. The only negative is that the trail on the backside of Fodderstack Mt is overgrown and in one place we lost the trail but did pick it up. I highly recommend downloading the map and following the line especially on that section. When we lost it it was about 30ft below the line on the map. Also it helps with following the right trail. There are several trails that cut in that AllTrails does not have on it. Don’t miss out on the views take theHangover Trail just after Bob Stratton Bald. There are places to camp just before the rock outcrop. To get to the waterfalls, take Slickrock Creek trail to the right after the big down hill for about 1/2 mile. There are three drops to Slickrock Creek and the falls are amazing

HikingGreat!

Trail is well marked. I didn’t make it to the end as this was my first hike in several years. The trail is steep starting out but is invigorating. This 61 year old overweight man hopes to hike it to the end soon.

The 360 view at the Hangover Lead overlook is stunning. There are actually great views for most of this trail. The Deep Creek section is definitely challenging with the number of downed trees, mossy rocks, water crossings and the final incline to get to the overlook. I literally saw no one until I got to the last half mile of the trail.

HikingBlowdownGreat!Over grown

Agreed this is one of the best hikes I've ever done, but be aware this is not for beginners. Lots of blowdowns and briers, we almost lost the trail a few times, so be prepared. We did in three nights and that was just about right, but you could shave off one night if you camp near the Hangover instead of staying the first night on top of Bob Stratton Bald. We had poor weather the first night with very high winds and rain but the next morning we took off and had lunch at the Hangover which was perfect after the morning fog burned off. Also, an overnight thunderstorm turned Slickrock creek into a raging river so be very careful on the crossing.

HikingBlowdownMuddy

We did a shortened version of this loop by returning via Slickrock trail from Big Fat Branch trail. Slickrock trail was the highlight. The Stratton Bald trail along the first part of the ridge was muddy. But the azaleas were blooming along this section. We continued on Hangover Lead trail which is dry and downhill with no obvious source of water. So we continued to Big Fat Branch trail which runs along a creek. We found a nice campsite 1 mile down Big Fat Branch. We looped back up Slickrock trail which is AWESOME with beautiful resting spots and waterfalls.. It runs along the creek for the first third then climbs up and crosses over toward Hangover Creek. We camped at a spot where the trail takes a hard right, away from Hangover Creek. It's a flat open area across the creek from this bend in the trail. The creek is great to explore, again with numerous waterfalls and picturesque spots. The climb up Slickrock trail from here is very steep with plenty of blowdown trees. You'll get a workout on the final return leg.

Backpacking

A lot of effort for relatively little reward. A good workout, but not one of the best backpacking trips I’ve done. Not unbearable but there are far better backcountry options in the area.

Very steep straight up mostly but to me that wasn’t too bad, but the downhill all way back killed my knees. Nice view at top, remember to go left and the end to very top until you see sign saying Hangover 56A not 56 which is to left. It’s exactly 3.5 miles one way so 7 total. Took us about 4 hours to complete hike. I’m in pretty good shape and it’s kinda tough but saw not one person on hike so that was nice. Very long gravel road to get to to hike but not too bad.

Awesome trail. Do this in 3 days/2 nights not 1 night like us. Way too much elevation gain for 2 days hiking - also, bears.

There was a lot of down trees, also a few sections where you had to look pretty hard to find the trail, there’s a creek running along on a section of it so plenty of water to get of you are going up towards melés grounds
