    Default 19E/Roan Parking

    Will be doing Hot Springs to 19E beginning next Friday! Was originally planning to go all the way to Damascus, however, work priorities are cutting my trip a bit short.

    Anyhoo, looks like Mountain Harbour has a very nice fenced in grass lot. Only problem they are $10/day and I'm looking at about a 10 day trip. I plan to call to see if they offer a long-term discount.

    Just wondering what others have done for parking in this area. Also, if you've used MH for parking, how was it?

    Parking at MH is a very solid insurance policy if you are worried about vandalism. I personally do not worry about vandalism and in 62 trips have not had any issues(4 of those trips flying though). Last time I parked at MH it was $5 but that was a few years ago. There is parking on the side of the road at the AT 19E intersection but it is not a parking lot per say. If you could extend your trip to Dennis Cove there is good paring there as well.

    Mountain Harbour charges $2 a day if you use one of their shuttles, $10 a day if you don't.

    I wouldnt park anywhere but MH there. Makes no sense. Use their shuttle, eat their breakfast, nothing simpler.

    I actually have a free ride to Hot Springs, so it would be full price parking for me, unfortunately.

    Free secure parking at The Station at 19e. If you CALL me I will be happy to come down and pick you up at the trailhead. If someone at the trailhead ask me if I have breakfast during the bubble then I would have to not lie and tell them yes we do serve breakfast. If it is off season then we give a free shuttle to Smoky Mountain Bakers for an awesome breakfast. http://www.roanmountainshuttle.com
