Beautiful trail, though we were clouded in for much of it. Parts of the trail were a bit muddy. The trail out of the trailhead on Roaring Creek Rd. Is different from the map in AllTrails, but it is clearly marked Overmountain Victory Trail. The GPS will tell you you are off trail, but you aren’t. Ended up at 8.9mi. Views when the sky is clear are stunning. Great section of the AT.

HikingGreat!

What a great hike. The views at both peaks are outstanding. I could have started this hike from a different direction on Hwy 19E but am glad that I drove the extra miles to get to this trailhead.

Great hike. Hump mountain is worth the climb. Tons of people on the trail this time of year. Good trail condition overall.

CampingGreat!

More challenging than I expected, but a lot of fun. Was very crowded on a Saturday: had trouble finding a camp site

HikingGreat!

Trail was easily navigated and well marked. we took the service road up to a trail that hooked back to the right before the red barn and followed the blue blazes to the AT and took a right. Followed that all the way up to little hump and then took the trail up hump mountain. Beware, this is not for beginners or if youre out of shape. This was an awesome trail with awesome views.

Stunning day hike. From the parking lot you can take either the overmountain victory trail (which is overgrown, but passable) or the trail suggested by AllTrails (which starts just behind the parking lot), to get up to the turn off to join the AT. Follow the white blazes from there. If you take the trail directly behind the parking lot (as opposed to the overmountain victory trail) you’ll end up at the red barn area, which in my opinion is entirely optional if you’re day hiking (it would be an awesome place to camp). There’s a lovely view there, but the views above it are better and you can save yourself some steps by taking a hard right to follow to blue blazed trail just before the barn.

Hiked up from Yellow Mountain Gap to the AT and then turned onto that (so didn’t complete the Overland Victory trail), but I want to go back to explore more. The Red Barn is a nice place to stop and look at a view. Hiking on a Sunday in nice weather, we only saw one other group on the trails. Overall, an enjoyable day. The one thing I’d mention is that the gravel road that you travel on for about half a mile is doable in a sedan, but I’d have been much more comfortable in a car with better off-road capability.

Moderate plus. The hike to the AT was not that great, it was an I paved road and lasted about a mile. However, once on the AT it was fantastic. Great views and challenging hike. Went on a weekend day and the trail was fairly crowded so be prepared

We didn’t do a good job scouting this map and ended up taking the wrong trail. A lot of connecting trails in the area so you definitely want to download the map! You actually take OMV trail to the AT, which then takes you up Little Hump and Hump mountains. Beautiful views on both and from the overmountain AT shelter (red barn). We didn’t cross any water sources along the AT but lots of camping on Little Hump. We ended up doing that whole section of the OMV trail before we realized our mistake/found cell service and while not big magnificent views, so many cool water features and gullies. Enjoyed that as well! If you have an extra few hours throw that in.
