This a really good trail, just like everything else that I have done on the AT. Be aware of the road going to Three Forks, it gets pretty rough at times. We did this on 9-22-2018. The road was recently scraped, so you should be able to get there in just about any vehicle. I also think it's unfair to give this trail a low rating because of the road conditions.

I'm sure it would have been a beautiful trail if I could have gotten there. Road to trailhead was impassable with a normal 2 wheel drive vehicle. Just be aware! Will try again another time!

Hiked with a small group. It was a great hike with a couple of good stopping points with a view. Truly a moderate hike.
