Hiked solo counterclockwise in 3 nights. Wouldn't recommend this approach, but (obviously) doable. Many spots where I had to search for trail markings, particularly in areas where trees are less dense, but I always found the trail (wouldn't recommend hiking at night, for this reason). All in all, beautiful views and some amazing camp sites.

Beautiful challenging trail. Did it solo in 8 days which was perfect. All the camping sites were good and mostly isolated. Met few hikers on trail except for the day hike spots (Silver Creek and the Carck). A must do for all backpacking amateurs!

Excellent trail! Hiked this one in July solo. Encountered very few other hikers other than in the day-hiking/canoe-in spots. Not recommended for beginners.

One of the best trails on the east coast. Phenomenal views.

The full hike is a loop, not p2p. I've done it twice and it's one of my favorites. Several great views from ridges every day. I've hiked all over the world and this is top notch. September is the best time to go, less bugs, cool nights, warm days.

Was an amazing trip, and took me 7 days to do it all. Be prepared for slippery muddy areas when it is wet, and for steep climbs. Definitely recommend if you're experienced, as it is a difficult hike.

Beautiful trail, but much of it was washed out and swampy (but still manageable). Completed in 5 days.
Many other hikers had difficulty sticking to their schedule and ended up poaching on other sites. This happened to myself on two of the nights, where we shared a site, and had to move to another site.

Overall, a great experience. Lots of fantastic views. Very little wildlife, surprisingly. We didn't see anything more than some bugs, squirrels and a snapping turtle.

I recommend this trail, but be prepared for steep climbs, and difficult terrain (especially when it rains)
