Snow and ice crystals all over the trail

We did the out and back to the shelter from 70. The trail can accessed at the Pass at the state line at a gate and abandoned stone building . We could not find the actual AT crossing along the road from the road. This is a very wooded section of the AT. The trail section from SR 70 to Spring MTN Shelter is in good condition. Some sections are fairly steep. Leaves were thinning but still green this Oct 11. Nice hike in the Appalachian forest. If your choosing there are more interesting sections. But it’s more remote with primarily a few section hikers on a the trail.
