Completed on 25NOV17 with my wife and my daughter (10 years old). Stayed one night next to the Tray Gap Shelter.

Approx 6.5 miles from Unicoi Gap to Tray Gap Shelter. You will complete around 13 miles out and back.

Hard. Recommend good hiking boots. Steep climbing and some sections very technical.

Views are beautiful!

Met few Thru hikers.

Highly recommended!!!

Loved this trail for its diversity. Lots of good mountain views as well as hiking in forest setting at lower elevations.

This is a rough section of the AT, you will pass many hikers on the trail. This portion of the AT doesn't get much attention until you get to the Wildcat- peak which extends views on clear days.
