This was my sons favorite trips. Our trip got cut short due to bears so we only went to spence field and back spending 1 night half way to the shelter then a night at the shelter itself. The trail has plenty of shade, water, and Rocks. Plenty of ankle support is needed here. From the Anthony Creek trailhead it is uphill all the way to Spence field. There were not any big overlooks that the boys were looking forward to, but with most of the hike running next to the creek they had plenty to explore on the breaks. Since our trip was cut short we did take a side trip to Rocky Top which is well worth the trip with a fantastic almost 360 degree view from the top. This was also the busiest trail we've done, but it's nice to talk to hikers from all over and with different experience levels.
