    Quite right.
    I would see it all the time when I hiked in Harriman in New York State.

    I once found - about 1/4 mile off trail - a complete set of pots and pans around an old camp fire site.

    Thank you.
    I see posted on my maps they allow for horses on some sections of the trail in the smokies.

    I have a question about the horses allowed on the AT in GSMNP.

    Does the trail flatten out a bit - where horses are allowed?
    Like not the narrow one hiker path in a divot most of the time?
