Trail has a bit of everything. I too made a slight change by taking Holly Springs to link up with Dunnfield Creek sooner and enjoyed a slow descent to the RedDot trail. Day was 85F so waterfall was a nice refresher. Started Friday so no crowds climbing MtTammany but that’s a lot of gain with a full pack (be prepared to work). Fire road was an easy walk to the Turquoise trail and took me right to Sunfish Pond for my camp, total solitude. Next day was an easy 4mile descent on the AT back to parking lot. Loved it.
