A challenging but run-able mostly double wide trail with lots of deep woods, valley views, water stop at the top extended

The trail was marked well with lots of water. However, bear wires are needed at Commissary Ridge Camp Ground. Ranger’s were beyond helpful. Recommend Yancy Transportation for trail head drop off and pickup from Burnsville.

Maple Camp Bald has great views!
