Our scout group backpacked the North-South Trail taking 3 and 1/2 days to complete it. Overall, a beautiful trip only marred by the trash that has washed up in areas when the lake is high. There are certain intersections on the trail that should be marked more clearly. The elevation gain I would call more than "minimal," but is not extreme.
We parked a trailer full of bikes at the North Visitor Center and on completion of the backpack rode bikes 19 miles down The Trace to Golden Pond Visitor Center. This worked well logistically and earned us the BSA 50-miler award.
