Hike this trail this weekend. Made a two night three day hike out our it staying at camp site 71 and Silers Bald. Day 2 was though with lots of elevation gain and pack that were heavy. But it was totally worth the time and effort. Love the fall and this hike!

The trail is well maintained, so expect to do this fairly quickly for a 21 miler. I was cloudy and rainy, so that might have affected my experience, but I felt it was all that great. The best view points are at the begining, doing the whole loop is a bit excessive.
