Definitely a beautiful hike, but I DEFINITELY recommend getting a map and actually paying attention to the waypoints/logging roads you come across. This trail is NOT well marked at times, especially when the loop turns back. I personally recommend the Old Military Road/Boardstand trail closer to Talimena State Park. It's much better marked and has lovely vistas, but it is also more crowded at times. Hope that helps.
