This was a great day hike. It was a good hike for our dog. We started at B.H. Reece Trail and then took the AT to beautiful views. There were many great places to have lunch with a view near the Blood Mountain shelter. We continued on the AT and then turned on Freeman Trail which took us back to B.H. Reece Trail. It was a great loop and was about 7 miles round trip.

Great hike - in spring you'll definitely run into AT thru-hikers, which is nice if you want to ponder tackling a 2200 mile hike in the future.

One of my all-time favorite hikes! Can't wait until the weather cooperates and we can get back to it. It is pretty challenging but I love scrambling over rocks, etc. Made a great day hike and very good views from the top. Very well marked...if you remember to look up, down, and all around for blazes. We missed one and wondered off the trail for a bit (followed by a thru-hiker unfortunate enough to have mistaken us as somebone who knew where they were going). Retracing our steps, and looking DOWN it was clearly marked on the rocks!

My idea of a perfect hike with incredible views, only way it could get better if there was a waterfall. I've been here in the snow, rain, and on sunny days and I have never had a bad time.

Difficult, but not so much to detract from the beauty of the vistas. Make sure you at least bring a day pack, as during February snacks and extra layers may become necessary. Wind-resistant clothing doesn't hurt either.
