Out and back, had a great time! Not a difficult trail at all, left Queens at around 11 and did the hike with plenty of time before sundown, of course this was in in August.
Also, really cool to come across hikers doing the AT. They have an aura around them, and even when they're warning you about snakes you don't want to stop them for too long. It's clear they had done a lot of miles that day, with more ahead of them, it's written on the grime on their face.
Finally, there is an ice cream shop right by the start, it's delicious. Bellvale creamery I think it's called.
