    The 911 call he placed was on Sunday, speaking to one of the head cops. He could have been lost, separated from his gear, in bad shape, etc., for a day by that time though. I’d be curious to hear...

    Hookodooku makes some nice suggestions. Deep Creek loop and #49 Cabin Flats were destinations for my young backpackers and both are great. Kinda far to drive from Knoxville when you've got so many...

    I like the Deep Creek suggestion. Just a beautiful area and my go-to spot for 1st time backpackers due to flat grade and beautiful scenery.

    Deep Creek is wide but shallow, perfect for wading...

    Deep Creek campsites review?

    Looking for campsite feedback along Deep Creek - sites 54-59. I have seen 57 (not overly impressed) and 56 (seemed nice?). We have flexibility on route/distance so really just looking for the...

    Thanks for the instructions alborg. They worked great and it was much easier than the "click along the path" method of google earth or hilltop.

    For myself I was seeking specifically GSMNP trail routes and not the AT. AT elevation profiles are abundant but profiling a multi-trail GSMNP hike is a little difficult.

    This is one I did on Hillmap. Took about 10 minutes of clicking along the route.

    I found another site - www.hillmap.com - which is more user friendly than Google Earth for this. You still have to click along the trail which is a pain in the butt. And a lengthy process if you...

    Ok this is great. I goof around Google Earth a lot when looking at GSMNP trips. I didn't realize there was an Elevation Profile feature to it. Just did a test run and I got it to work like I...

    Sorry just recalled the start of Thomas Divide trail would require 3/4 mile (?) road walk from Deep Creek to reach the TD trailhead. Takes a little shine off the route but still worth the effort in...

    I've hiked those trails many times. In my opinion Day 1 would be very taxing. Noland Divide would be a big climb, assumedly when your pack is the heaviest. And the last time I hiked Pole Creek it...
