Tellico Plains, TN
Pathfinder | 130 pts
I should have picked another trail to start back-up with after a month off. The trail starts with a long steady climb full of tourists, but eventually the crowds fade away, and you find yourself enjoying some real quite time. The trail is pretty rocky in places. The "bunion" itself makes the effort worth while. Great views! I met several AT thru-hikers on this trail (early spring).
