Great hike out of Cosby Campground. Steady climbing all the way up. My suunto ambit clocked it 5.62 from the parking area to the junction with the AT. I made a loop back to the campground using Maddron’s Bald and Gabe’s Mountain trails totaling 19.75 miles (including the walking through the campground). Long for a day hike, but a great walk and much less crowded than the hikes in the more popular areas of the park. Able to see Maddrons Bald, Albright Grove and Hen Wallow Falls.
