Hi. I think I met you at the Labor Day weekend in Michigan. Try the Elk Mount campground in the Smokies. Bears are often spotted in the Cades Cove area of the Smokies. Look on the internet. Some trails to try are the lake shore loop which is on the Carolina side of the Smokies or the Rich Mountain Loop out of Cades Cove. When I hiked that back in 2004, I saw a live bear. Also, the Rainbow Falls trail is another good hike. Once again, if you get on the internet that should help. Have fun! Robert. Wish I could go.....
