Terrific Moderate to Difficult hike mostly because of the lengths. The elevation gain is mostly gradual. I did this hike with the Roanoke Appalachian Trail Club and was put to shame by an incredibly fit 70+ year old woman. All season hike depending on the weather and temps and suitable for backpacking.
