Hey guys.

I'm toying with trying to get the buddies together and do a trip this June but I'm not sure what I'm looking at.

I can pull up the area on Google and see the trails, but can't see the names except the AT.

I can see an odd shaped loop that comes out of Grayson, spurs off NW to Mt. Rogers and then doubles back to the AT and follows it for sometime before dropping back down south towards Grayson highlands.

Does this loop have a formal name?

Doing some quick tracing in Google Earth it looks like its something like ~16 miles.

Anyone have an idea of how long it takes to complete?
