    Next question. What is the best way to identify resupply points for a certain spot on the trail?

    During our seven day trip, we would like to resupply early on day 4. Looking at our agenda, we should be at the Wayah Bald shelter on our fourth night so we would be stopping after that

    I have both Guthooks and the AWOL guide book but, have only looked at Guthooks thus far. Maybe I'm not looking for it in the right place but in don't see the info in Guthooks.

    I'll take suggestions but, would rather understand the process.

    Thank you all.

    We resupplied in Franklin, we went in from Rock Gap. Then we resupplied at the N.O.C., pricey but convenient.

    The AWOL Guide is more useful for resupply for me. It has maps of trail towns showing where everything is that a hiker would want (grocery stores, AYCE, post office, etc) in a nice format.

    Thank you. I pulled my current section out of the guide for review this morning. I love planning and logistics, so this is all fun.

    When I did this section (in October BTW), I went all the way to NOC before resupplying, then just 2 days to Fontana made the load lighter going up Cheoh Bald. I have heard of people getting rides at Stecoah and Winding Chair Gaps to resupply but have not done this personally.
