This hike serves as a good introduction to the Appalachian Trail (AT), as it passes through the rich Raven Cliff Wilderness and includes mostly moderate hiking. There is one especially challenging ascent from Tesnatee Gap up Wildcat Mountain, so you should be in good physical condition to do this section of the AT. Also, the hike begins at the Mountain Crossings gear store where thru-hikers resupply and get trail information.
