I enjoyed this hike, but found the AT was a little easier to hike due to the amount of rocks on this trail.

Some tricky parts, but definitely worth it. You're really in a hardwood forest with nature all around. Hard to believe you're only a few minutes outside of town.

Being from Ashe County and growing up in the shadow of Mount Jefferson, I hike the mountain all the time. It is my place of solace and solitude. There is always a new nook to find and path to explore.
