It was a great day hike trail. Not mark very great, but me and some friends managed. One thing that did catch us off guard is that to get to the trail head, there is a ~5 mile long gravel road stretch that essentially takes you halfway up the mountain.

The hike can be a difficult one, however the view from the top is absolutely breath taking and makes it well worth it. I'm not sure if this is the same trail we took, we ended up on the AT at the Albert Mountain fire tower.
