We did this hike on a Sunday and saw only 2 people on the trail until we got to the top of Sassafras Mtn. Starting at Foothills Trail parking lot off Hwy 178 near Rocky Bottom, we went to Sassafras (via Chimney Top Gap) and back down in about 5 hours. The trailhead is just across the street near the bridge. A total of just over 9 miles. We had lunch at the top of the mountain and took some great photos. This is a challenging trail, but a fun hike. We had hoped to start at Sassafras and go to Table Rock, but Hurricane Irma got her way and messed up some of the trails so, which were closed and we did not get to hike over. Next time!
