HIGHLIGHTS: This loop hike uses both the Benton MacKaye and Appalachian Trails to run a moderate 4.4 mile route with nice views from both Springer Mountain on the A.T. and Ball Mountain on the BMT. The Benton MacKaye vista is located at a small clearing just past Ball Mountain as you approach Big Stamp Gap. The hike starts and ends at a gravel parking area on USFS 42 at the Appalachian Trail.
