Camped at the Cosby campground and hiked to the A.T. . Pack weight was 50 pounds and planning to be on the A.T. For a week. This trail you Must have hiking poles. You must have ankle wraps. The entire trail requires you to concentrate on your footing. Since you change elevation the flora is a changing constantly. Consumed 3 liters of water.

Good uphill hike. Lots of roots and rocks. Good exploring.

We traveled up to the AT marker and back for a day hike. Steep. It's a constant uphill experience with plenty of rocks, roots, and snails. Trail is narrow but clear and maintained. Props to the people carrying chainsaws up there! Great workout. One nice overlook and the creek with the bridge is nice. I definitely plan to do more trails around the Cosby campground.

Steep, narrow, rocky, up-hill all the way. Nice view about mid-way up. Impressive change of flora and climate along the way.
