100 mile wilderness lies the most beautiful spot of my thru hike on the AT. It is called Gulf Hagas. A 5 mile loop that is not part of the AT. It has big cliffs, tons of waterfalls that are fairly big, headwaters, grotto pool for swimming. I walked out of there mesmerized. If you pass this up at least know you are missing something very special. The next best place on the AT for me was the presidential range.
Do not pass this by unless you have to. Trail is not difficult/taxing.
