    hi Brett. do you know which trails in the smokies we would be hitting? there are and were so many i wasnt able to see during my 2013 thru hike of the A.T. i would love to go check some out. Also i just got back from my hike 5 days ago so i still have my trail legs but my pocket book lost more weight than i did. is there a ride share and chip in on gas? or would we be making our own way to Gatlinburg?

      the hike starts in cataloochee and we will go clockwise over to hyatt ridge where site 44 is at the end of the hyatt ridge trail then over to hughes ridge trail and up to the AT and tri corner shelter for the second night
      from thefe we go south on the balsam mt trail and tirn on the sterling ridge trail to mt sterling to camp at the firetower site 38
      the last day head down through little cataloochee where there are a few historical buildings thats it.
      the route is very moderate because once we get to hughes ridge the trail is along ridgetops so there are bot any really long climbs. day one is the hardest with the climb up to hyatt ridge
      wecan ride together if you want to meet me down by toledo
      the park is still closed as of now
      the reservations have to be made after they reopen i will do that
      email me if you plan to go
