Trails included in this hikeOld Hotel Trail
OverviewThis complete loop hike links the sections of the AT and Old Hotel Trail between Floyds Mountain and Cole Mountain (frequently referred to as Cold Mountain) through the Mount Pleasant National Scenic Area of the George Washington National Forest. This loop can be done in either direction though clockwise (as shown) provides a better warmup before the sustained climb toward the saddle and summit of Cole Mountain.
Need to KnowBackpackers often connect Cole Mountain with Mount Pleasant using this loop and the Henry Lanum Trail #702 loop for a figure-eight hike.
