This is a moderate hike for an early Saturday morning.  There are three great overlooks from this section of the AT trail between Woody Gap and Sassafras Mountain.  At Sassafras we can stop for a snack, admire the view, and then head back to Woody Gap.  The last over look is north of Woody Gap about 2 more miles (4 round trip), this part is otional.  Total distance to Sassafras from Woody Gap is 7 miles (14 round trip).

     Everyone is encouraged to hike at there own pace, and it is recommended to regroup at the tops mountains or in the gaps.
