As no one has reviewed this yet I guess I'll give it a crack. This has to be one of the best sections of the AT. Allot of steep up and downs fill this section and so make it a proving ground for many a hopeful thru-hiker every spring, on their way from GA to ME. There are far too many great sections of this part of the trail to list. From Max Patch & following cairns along a string of treeless balds, to the brilliant tunnels of blooming rhododendron near Roan Mt., or hiking through the trail town of Hot springs and stopping for a soak in the hot tubs or a drink at the pub. If I could rate it higher than 5 stars I would & some of the friendships with fellow hikers I have been fortunate enough to gain will forever be cherished with memories of a long hike on such a special trail.
