This trail was definitely not easy for us as far as elevation. It was a good trail, not so rocky but there are a lot of steps. There were a few muddy spots. We had the trail to ourselves. Everyone else was hiking Nino to Charles Bunion.

Harder than I expected although the trail is in great condition. Not a lot of open areas to see neighboring mountains, but my first hike on the AT so it was fun!

Not an easy trail. The rocks and roots really push this hike into the moderate category.

Easy 3.4 mile round trip with some ups and downs along the ridge line. Hike is through the Forrest with limited views to the valleys on either side.

Easy trail. Had a bad knee so going down was rough. Altogether a nice trail. Could hear traffic the entire way

The trail was more challenging than we expected due to the steep trail. The trail itself is nice and shaded. The only other hikers we saw were AT hikers and they were all very nice

I liked this trail. it was quiet and the only other hikers we encountered were AT hikers going north. The climb is steady up and very manageable. When we reached the top we walked the Clingmans Dome Rd. back enjoying the overlooks and sun since the roads was closed. A nice hike with few people at the time we went.

Completely forest covered but still Smoky mountain beautiful. We joined this with the 8.6 mile -newfound to Charlie’s trail. You will come out to the road and be staring right at the newfound trailhead parking lot. The AT sign doesn’t say Charlie’s but just as long as you’re heading north, you’ll get there.. We realized on the way back to our car at Indian gap, this 3 mile portion was much more challenging than we originally thought at 8am ;)

Some nice views and interesting turns. I liked how the plants changed as you got higher in elevation. I was fine (20s) but my mother (60s) had problems with the steps. As you go east to west, the trail has a lot of big steps and so it isn't always a gradual incline. Only other minor issue is you can often hear the cars from the parallel road.
