Terrain varies in elevation from 2,500 to more than 4,700 feet. Trails can be tricky to follow so take a map, and pay close attention throughout the hike. Hikers should expect rocky and muddy trails, high water crossings, large bogs, and false trails. Weather can change abruptly—heavy rain can cause water to rise rapidly in streams, and snow is possible at higher elevations October through April.
