The first part of this hike is in the woods. It wasn't particularly challenging, except for the deep wet leaves made footing slippery. On the north side of Day Mountain, there were still green ferns and green moss. An oasis of green in a brown world. The next part of this hike was a road walk in Dalton. The town has some Victorian houses and seems very hiker-friendly. We saw a number of AT signs on people's houses.
