A quick pace got us out and back in just under 6 hours after taking a 30 minute break at Brasstown Bald. The summit gave views of many future mountains to climb. Looking forward to each one.

Very easy, entirely flat trail. It is historical, so take one of the guide maps. I didn't, and was very confused. I'd recommend this trail for running, but not for hiking.

We started our hike just after 9am on Sunday morning. We only met a few hikers during our hike, don't know why (possibly because of unattractive weather forecast) - but can't complain about that.
We were not prepared, didn't really study trails and didn't have trailmap, which was quite tricky as we wanted to do a loop instead of going back the same way from the summit. It took as a while and couple more miles to figure it out, so we made 9.5miles trip, which was a great workout. Will be back in fall, recommended!

Did most of the trails - red, white, blue, yellow and a few unmarked -- maintaining a fairly quick pace to total about 11 miles. Pleasant and worth a leisurely moderate Sunday morning/afternoon hike with a few technical spots to keep the fun in exploring the wilderness.

Good day hike. Challenging enough to be entertaining but not impossible. At one point we lost the blazes until we looked UP. Only two other parties on the trail that day but it runs up behind a neighborhood near the start. Would've been 5 stars if it was more remote.

My husband, dad and I were taking turns pulling my 5 year old son in a wagon for a couple of miles and the paved sections and boardwalk were easy. The rsmall rolling sections targeted different muscle groups. When we go down to GA again, I'll make sure that we do this trail again.

A great set of trails! Moderate-level climbs and downhills. You definitely need a map with you or take a photo of the map at the parking areas. You will get lost if you've never been there before. Bring plenty of water!

These trails and campground is great! Camping with my horse with trail & lake access was awesome! Camp sites have tie lines already in place. Swimming with my horse was great. Trails could be better marked however.
