Just finished a 4 day backpacking trip from Three Forks to Blood mountain. Low temp was 18 and high of 54. Mornings were cool and had to shed layers after starting each day. We saw several day hikers but not too many on our last night. No bears were seen. Bear box is at campsite Woods hole. It's about .25 mile off the AT but there is a privy and a cool 3 sided shelter and a small water source. Blood Mountain was a great view but the down hill to Neels gap was a lot of stone steps.
Good luck & Happy Trails!
