|.||Notes on the hike:
Following the Deep Gap Trail will take you to a continuous path of up and down trails. This hike is strenuous due to the constant crossing of the different peaks that involve very steep ascents and descents. Carefully follow a blazed orange trail for the blazings can get sparse. There are hike spots which are very steep, and can require a lot of arm and leg muscle use, especially with heavy bagpacks. (Comparable to Breakneck hike in New York). On the way are spectacular and scenic views of cascading mountains.
