Good trail with nice elevation. View at the top is worth the hike. The forest burning had a portion of the trail closed so we will have to go back. Get hike for a day trip.

This is a pretty easy trail with beautiful scenery, I have heard of seeing wild life though I haven't seen anything other than birds and squirrels myself.

Cold Mountain is as pretty a vista as you'll find anywhere. Taking the Hotel trail to the AT makes a great circuit - and lunch on top can't be beat!
