There is information on these trails online. See belw.

Duncan Ridge Trail
Note: This trail can be combined with the Appalachian Trail to create a loop 
that is slightly more than 60 miles long that takes 8-10 days to complete. 

This path is extremely strenuous. For experienced backpackers this trail 
offers some of the most challenging climbs in the United States.
