Traveled this trail last week, and it was a hit or miss for bogs. Many times we had to 'feel our way' with trekking poles to prevent from getting sucked in. It will slow your pace, so plan accordingly. Beautiful area and I can't wait to get back.

Great hike with beautiful forests and rhododendron bushes for as far as you can see. Also lots of mud. Travel may be slow.

This trail is extremely steep on the south side. I didn't do the north side. So if you are hiking south east to northwest, you are going to get a good workout in!

Lower half of the trail heading down to Red Creek is steep with plenty of technical areas. The waterfall right after where Dunkenbarger comes in is amazing though.
