    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "This hike follows the Greenwood Trail for several miles before joining with the Appalachian Trail (AT). It pick ups the AT and follows that into Quarry Gap, past the Quarry Gap Shelter, and onto the ridge above.

    From the ridge, the hike follows the Hosack Run Trail down into a beautiful and remote rhododendron-filled ravine and then rejoins the Greenwood Trail a mile or so from the trailhead."
