From the start at Springer Mountain, the Benton MacKaye Trail, Section I follows the ridge line around Ball Mountain to Big Stamp Gap, returning to join the Appalachian Trail a short distance north of the Springer Mountain Parking lot on F.S. 42. For .6 miles the AT and BMT share the footpath until the AT comes off to the left while the Benton MacKaye continues along Rich Mountain. Finally the two rejoin just before Three Forks.
