Trail shared by Brian Rhodes

A fun loop from the Silvermine TH that crosses the AT.

Description

Climb 1.3 miles, then cross the AT. Drop off the back side of the ridge, and then climb back to the AT. There are some old logging roads that the trail crosses. They are mostly well marked but can be slightly tricky on your first time out. Use the Trail Run Project mobile app for on-trail navigation. There is a great climb, and then a bombing descent back to the Silvermine TH.

Flora & Fauna

Watch out for stinging nettles!
