Have done this hike three times! First time in April 2017 with my daughter Tori - My first real hike! We did Pinwheel Vista and the beautiful Boardwalks, enjoyed the view from the Stairway to Heaven and then continued on to the AT to view the top. Went back 9/30/17 with my daughter Lily and then again with my sister in law Dee on 11/3/17 for her birthday! nothing like a hike on your birthday! It is one of my favorite hikes. Started at the boardwalk..so many things to see on the trail!
