Went up Major Welch and down the Appalachian Trail. Found the climb a bit challenging, but well worth it. Went with a group of mixed skill level hikers, including some first timers, and everyone was able to complete the trail.

Went up with my 9 year old chocolate lab. She struggled a bit on the steep sections but was able to do it. Definitely a great experience all around. Took the red circle white squares up and the white rectangles down. Would do this again for sure but maybe not with the pup.
