Worth it. Sketchy parking area. Cool old-timey cabins to see. Huge trees to see.

Great hike! Uphill for 6 miles, and then down hill for 6 miles. At least the middle 4 miles was snow covered, with opportunities for "ankle turning" if you do not pay attention to foot placement. The view at the top was incredible! When you get to the App. Trail portion (take left), that portion you feel like you are at the top but it is still almost 1 hour across to the Fire Tower. We saw no animals at all, not even a squirrel!

Campground was not crowded at all. Maybe only 20% of sites occupied. I'd been worried about finding a spot and was told Cosby is rarely full. We hiked the short 1 mile Nature trail 2 times since wife hurt her foot and couldn't walk up hill. The Nature trail was very good and one of best hikes i've ever found. Walked the road down to highway which was surprising nice, easy, tall trees and along river for quiet a while and few cars. It was 2 1/2 from campground.
Will go here again if we ever come back to SMNP.

Very nice trail. Took Boy Scouts up to the AT, took a picture and kept hiking back around to the Cosby Campground. Good water supplies.

Nice hike, it was foggy all day so no views for me, did locate the plane wreckage from the 1984 crash, not much left anymore.

Started at Cosby Campground, hiked up Low Gap Trailhead to the AT, headed to Mt Cammerer, then down Lower Mt Cammerer trail. It ended up being just over 16 miles. We had a great time!
