When I went, it was the middle of a hot day in early June. Only the north entrance was open. I encountered less than 10 other ppl during my 1.5 hours uphill towards the south parking lot then back on Wimp’s pass (begrudgingly only due to the name). It was mid-afternoon and all the people I saw appeared towards the end of my jaunt. Not over burdened by insects or “technical” terrain. The uphill was definitely that. The low way back was flat and easy. I think due to the proximity to Knoxville this system is excellent.
