A hard hike, very challenging and technical at times. But a hike worth the views. Water is scarce, so plan according. 1.5 L bladder and 32 oz bottle was pushing it, but was sufficient.

This is also my first backpacking trip. Started at Horse Gap and ended at Neel Gap, 23 miles in two days.

We reversed this, starting at Neels Gap and ending at Woody Gap. It ended up being a total of 11.3 miles either way you do it. Usually all trails is a little heavy on the milage, but not on this one. I wouldn't recommend doing this on the weekend, just because Blood Mountain has become really popular. other than fighting the crowds, it was a awesome trip. Don't skip out on the first blue trail, it goes to preacher's rock. you won't be disappointed.

I have done this section numerous times and it has been a great hike every time. The water sources were scarce so make sure you fill up when you can.

This is a toughie. Some fantastic views, so it’s worth it, but it ain’t for the faint of heart. Sold almost 10 miler, all sorts of trail terrain, climbing, smooth running, scrambling, could use poles but not necessary, bare rock in spots, and did I mention it’s beautiful and tough?
