Started in Madrid walked to AT waterfalls hiked up Popular Ridge over Saddleback Junior, the Horn and Saddleback down to route 4. Total time 8 hrs. Great hike, miscalculated water needs dry at higher elevations. Should have 3 liter bladder at minimum in dry months June to August.

Somewhat difficult, a lot of uphill work obviously across two peaks. Extremely rewarding however, the views are spectacular. Windy at the top. Forests in between are incredible as well. Good fun. Check out that rock on the sidepath as well on your way up saddleback.
