Backpacking: Low Gap (U.S. 421), TN to Watauga Dam Road, TN

  • Apr 27, 2012 · 5:00 PM

We are going to do a short two night hop from Low Gap (U.S. 421) to Watauga Dam Road on the AT. The plan is to meet at Logan's house at 5pm, but if we have other people sign up for this event we will meet next to the CPA at ETSU.

The trip is 22.3 miles. We will hike approximately 1.3 miles Friday, 18 miles Saturday, and 3 miles Sunday. This schedule is very flexible, but I wanted to post a rough idea of the trip plans.

The first night we will likely stay in tents (could stay in the Double Springs Shelter, but it is unlikely that we will get this far before dark). The second night we may stay in the Vandeventer Shelter, but we may chose to use a tent (shelter may be full with thru hikers).

Come join us for a great trip!!!!
