my girlfriend and I went in at Winding Stair Gap. We hiked about 11 miles the first day and camped out at the Wayah Shelter area. We stopped at. Silar Bald and the Wayah Lookout Tower. 2nd day we hike approx 11 miles to the Wesser Shelter area. We stopped at the Wesser Fire Tower. what amazing views even with the low clouds. 3rd day we hiked approx 5.5 miles to the N.O.C. the best part of the hike was walking out on the end of the ridge a few miles North of the Wesser Shelter. What a view and experience to see that ridge come to an end right in front of you. what an amazing A.T. hike with the love of my life. We didn't encounter much wildlife, but we did encounter plenty of friendly hikers going both directions.
