This trail is rated as hard and I would say that is pretty accurate, but not because it’s dangerous (it’s not). This is a short hike, but with a huge jump in elevation. Your legs will be burning when you get to the top. The view is well worth the effort. It was warm today but still a little snow on the mountains to make for a picturesque view. When driving Into the Cherokee National Forest watch for potholes and deep mud holes. The directions on this app will put you right at the trailhead which is easy to drive right by and not see it.
