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.
