start your hike at Chimney top gap for a decent uphill hike to get to the summit overlook. Most sites have the trailhead starting at the summit.

Tough hike but fun and challenging. Not much to see along the way but great to see the view at the top of Sassafras Mtn. Did this hike in mid September.

Sept of 2014. Great weather with clear cool nights. A wonderful weekend hike.

We did this hike on a Sunday and saw only 2 people on the trail until we got to the top of Sassafras Mtn. Starting at Foothills Trail parking lot off Hwy 178 near Rocky Bottom, we went to Sassafras (via Chimney Top Gap) and back down in about 5 hours. The trailhead is just across the street near the bridge. A total of just over 9 miles. We had lunch at the top of the mountain and took some great photos. This is a challenging trail, but a fun hike. We had hoped to start at Sassafras and go to Table Rock, but Hurricane Irma got her way and messed up some of the trails so, which were closed and we did not get to hike over. Next time!

So beautiful! Difficult at times but worth it

Tougher than expected but had a great time. Lots of inclines and declines so pack light!

We hiked from laurel valley to the top of Sassafras Mountain. It's 4.7 miles with a pretty consistent incline the whole way. It was very well maintained and a great hike! We definitely got a good workout!

This is a lovely hiking area with lots of camping spots and scenic views. You do need to watch for bears and bees, although the bees seem very tame.
