Great train. Freeman trail is less traveled and very rocky. Pay attention when coming down the mountain turn into freeman trail is not very obvious. All in all a great hike.

Hiked freeman and down AT. A very scenic hike with a lot of terrain. A difficult hike with several large boulders and rocks to climb. The freeman was dense with vegetation and several down trees blocked some of the trails, just be ready to climb over/under to navigate the trail. Didn't see any yellowjackets.

Great view from on top of the mountain. Very peaceful.

Went after the storm, freeman trailed had a good amount of trees down and sadly the yellow jackets moral was unwavered as they are still thriving. Nonetheless freeman loop to the top is best approach to get there for sure.

This is a great trail with beautiful views. The hike is challenging but very rewarding. I highly recommend. Only downside was a yellow jackets nest right in the middle of the trail.

Great day for hiking. Couldn't ask for better weather. This was my 6th trip up. A lot of hikers were out today, more than I'd ever seen on the mountain.
