great hike for experienced backpacker/hikers. steep ascend to Blue Mountain Shelter, very crowded after 5PM on Sat 11/18. if you're going to that shelter, get an early start in case you want to set camp away from the shelter. it was tough setting my hammock and tarp in the rain after sunset.

This section of AT is mostly wooded with dappled sunlight the entire way (while the trees have their foliage). The first half of the trail is nice: smooth trail, ferns, and Rhododendron groves. The second half has a very rocky trail and takes more time to compete. There are multiple campsites and water sources in this section.
