This is a fantastic trail with a lot of moderate to strenuous climbs. Some rock scrambling is involved, too, but the views from the peak of Blood Mountain are out of this world! There is a lot of water along the way, which my dog really loved. This is a really wonderful section of the Appalachian Trail.

This hike was beautiful. It was strenuous and in winter is very icy. I wouldn’t recommend for inexperienced hikers.
