Lots of folks on Red Dot, even at 9am on a Fri, but didn’t see a single other person until Sunfish Pond when I left the Blue trail. That walk along the ridge is beautiful mountain meadows full of blueberry bushes, and a tight little animal track down Turquoise to the pond—don’t miss the turn! Swam in the pond, ate lunch, saw a few snakes snacking on frogs, and then didn’t see another person once I was on Turquoise again.

If you’re going counterclockwise, the end of the trail is closed, you have to divert to Red and finish on the AT, which is crowded again.

Beautiful, full-day hike!
