We hiked this in the clockwise route, up Cedar, down White oak. The hike started a bit dreary but cleared up while on the AT where we stopped at one of the overlooks for a quick bite to eat. The transition from the AT to white oak is not intuitive, you pop out by stables take a right down the road to the parking lot where you'll find the next trailhead. Beautiful falls the whole way down, even in the fog :)

Did this as a day hike and it took 10:30 hours, I started walking down some wrong paths and taking some detours to see some lookout points so ended up being 26.6 miles. I saw 4 bears, you may want to wear bells or something. It was a great hike overall!

did this trail, sleepless, starting at 6:30am went up cedar run made it to hawksbill summit around 11 am ish. passed out for an hour in day shelter then proceeded down the AT where we came nearly face to face with a bear. came across some cool snakes and a turkey as well. loads of great water falls going both up and down

Working on plannign this hike, can't find anything on it outside this website and need to learn about camping options and leg length (by day). Hoping to do it in two days, planning on driving out THU night and hiking, full day of hiking friday and saturday, leave sunday morning early. If anyone has advice I'd appreciate it.

Great hike; have done it twice and will return. Clockwise route (up Cedar, down White Oak) is better. Bring 3L of water per person and sturdy shoes.

white oak canyon boundary up cedar run to hawksbill, do loop salamander to hawksbill peak. hop on the trail north to stony man. will pass skyland. strony and little stony til you get to nicholson hollow. take nicholson all the way to base of old rag and then hit old rag. 4 peaks can be done in less than 2 days. Corbin Cabin off nicholson a fair halfway point. Can add robertson peak to the trip. Superb mix of creek, river, waterfall, peak, scramble, views. Everything is breathtaking.

Beautiful hike with great views and waterfalls.
