I took the Catawba Mountain Trail/Fire Road back down to the parking lot on Rt. 311 after hiking up the AT for the spectacular views at McAfee Knob. There weren’t many views on the way down, but I still enjoyed the return trip. The trail was also a little easier. The combination made for a very memorable hike!
