i hiked from brasstown bald down to young harris. as always it was beautiful in the cloud forest and boulderfields above 4000 feet. i am amazed at the work that was done to complete this trail thru the solid rock ridge of little bald. the pink rhododendrons were in bloom. all was good until the last 2 miles. then you have a steep rocky rutted overgrown trail which is not maintained and in sad condition. also it was 90 degrees when i reached the end at bald mountain road. it was 7 miles total.
