Did part of this as part of the Keyser Fire Road - Little Devils Stairs - Piney Branch Trail - Sugar Loaf Trail - AT - Hogback loop.

Started at the KFR lot, took LDS down, KFR to PBT then S:T to AT & Hogback to the lot.

The hardest part [on the knees] was LDS. Otherwise was a pretty moderate but challenging hike. Was a pretty warm spring day...probably 70s and somewhat sunny.

Passed several groups of hikers who were going up LDS and at one point on PBT one of those groups. There were a few on the Hogback trail but otherwise had the trails to myself.
