This trail is great for trail running. It's a single track trail that's fairly smooth overall. Lots of thru hikers which was great. I definitely want this run again. It's up and down but beautiful run.

I find this to be a great section of trail to hike. Of course I may be a little prejudiced since I've maintained this trail from Greasy Creek Gap to Hughes Gap for 12 years.
