The boulders create quite the challenge. You must be comfortable stepping across boulders between dark chasms for this one! Tough but crazily fun to do. Me and my three friends were in very good shape, and are all pretty athletic, and it was still a challenge. Wouldn't suggest in the snow or rain... Go into the caves on the sides.... Eerily cold and ice even in August. Awesome hike.

Put the poles and sticks away and use those hands!

Some say this is the toughest section of the entire AT. The notch was certainly a handfull. LOL So was Success. I loved Goose Eye. Dream Lake with it's view of Mount Washinton is where I saw a moose. This trail is not for the unconditioned but it is a "must do" for all others.

Great trail, great fun. Done this stretch of the AT twice, this is for the second time around. Saw a moose on the first day near Dryad Falls. Sitting right in front of me and stood up! Found the DC-3 crash site on Mount Success, and had a blast playing around in the notch itself. Info on crash site below.
