Great fall hike. More crowded than I would have thought. We sectioned hike from Cooper Gap. The sign is misleading. Someone mistakenly wrote Gooch Gap but according to Guthook it is Cooper.

Great day for it. Started out at 68* and ended at 77* I’ll take hat for August in GA. Well kept trail and not many people on it.

Nice hike but I’d recommend doing it when the leaves are off the trees. Hiked it yesterday (mid-summer) and only had two good views of the mountains. The views were beautiful, but you’d have great views the entire hike with no leaves! This was relatively easy terrain compared to the AT section to the south (Sassafras Mountain).

Awesome trail. We did this actually from Hightower Gap to Woody Gap, point to point. Mileage was a little more than 12 miles and took us about 6 hours including a few short rest breaks. Trail is very easy to follow. I enjoyed this very much and would do it again, but only during winter months. The views are so much better.

Great trail to push your limits. Starting in Woody Gap with a rocky 1 mile climb to a great view at Ram Rock Mt.. Then mild hiking to Gooch and Cooper Gap on well manicured trail (thanks ATC Ga.) This aloud me to up-my-pace for a out-and-back 16 miles. (not bad for 67)
