Mavis Bank to Whitfield Hall to Blue Mountain Peak hike

Hi

We are planning to hike Blue Mountain Peak in mid-August and I have heard that the portion from Mavis Bank to Whitfield Hall can be hiked (instead of driving). Our plan is to do this and then do a sunrise hike (guided) to the peak the next morning from Whitfield Hall.

Unfortunately I cannot find specific info online about the Mavis Bank -> Whitfield part of the hike. Does anybody have information on where exactly the hike starts from, route map, how well marked is the trail, is it easy to do unguided without getting lost? Also how about the weather in August? I heard that the Mavis Bank hike crosses two rivers so not sure if it will be flooded at that time.

Thanks!

How about asking Whitfield when you book?

Thanks, I did find out more information from them yesterday. It looks to be a well marked trail and the weather should not be a problem. If somebody here has done the hike before I would love to hear your experience - please do post on the forum or contact me directly.

I want to do the same thing this August, Is it safe to do it alone as a female and how long did it take you to hike from MAVIS TO Whitefield.

Thanks
