nice trail. lot of switchbacks going up. Just past the sign for Lover's Leap #308 (going up), there is a huge nest of yellowjackets on the trail. we got stung really bad, so be careful!

nice hike not great scenic views, but enjoyable hike.

I completed this section with my wife and with my 10 years old daughter. We stayed overnight and came back next morning to Hot Springs campground.

You will hike one mile next to the river...

Was our pleasure to meet two Appalachian thru Hikers... great stories and good motivation!!!

I rate this section Hard.

Views = good ( different points to stop and take some pics)

Hiking shoes highly recommended. I saw some people with running shoes having a hard time...

We actually went up twice. We took the AT entrance way. Beautiful hike up. The backside is like a jungle and ends up at the Silvermine trailhead. We walked through the parking lit and down the ‘Deliverance’ road and up again the AT side and this time took the AT all the way up along the ridge until the Push Loop trail and backside of the mountain - the tropical jungle. No views. Just a creek and lots of leaves. We got lost somehow and ended up at a campground and just hiked through until we got to the parking lot. Them hiked back to Hot Springs for an ice-cold brew. We did about 10 miles total.

We went on this trail in the fall and the view was amazing at the top! The trail was a little untended to, however fairly easy to navigate. I will be doing this hike again soon!

Not clearly marked and/or directed. Lead me on steep climb and down other side of mountain to diff trailhead for Pump Gap Trail. Then can't find Pump Gap Trail on this app....rendering this app useless for this!

A hard but fun trail! All of us are still sore - a good workout due to the vertical incline. The view isn't that great and it was actually 5.6 miles, not 3.4. It took us 2 hours to get through.

Hell of a workout. I was a little disappointed when a car drove up to the fire tower at the top of the mountain after I worked so hard to get there.

Fun hike if this is the one that starts at the silver mine. AT trail well marked with white stripes. Great view of the river and surrounding landscape as you climb up
