    Default Shuttles for GSMNP Nov 2020?

    I'm planning a AT trip in the Smokies in Nov for west half of the AT. Who is shuttling
    down that away now? I've reached out to several of the tourist shuttle services but am
    not hearing back from them.

    Thx

    Have you tried a walk in the woods? That is a pretty slow time of year fro shuttling, Ron Brown may be interested but he typically stops at fontana dam

    They are closed for AT shuttles for 2020 and concentrating on other shuttle services. Thx for the suggestion. I have an email in to AAA Hiker Service.

    I hiked from Fontana up to Newfound Gap a few weeks ago. As i was leaving car at dam another vehicle pulled in and was dropping off hikers. I got to talking with the driver who said he was doing shuttles in that area. His name was Stripper and he can be reached at (317)417-5351. His passengers said that the rates were reasonable and he was punctual with pickup. Good luck!

    I've tried contacting AAA Hiker Service several times this year.
    They never answer the phone.
    When I left a Voice Mail, I never got a response.
    Tried Texting their Cell Phone Number, I never got a response.

    I used AAA Hiker Service this past weekend to go from Standing Bear to Fontana and would recommend. Try [email protected]. Once I initially got in touch they were responsive and flexible.

    I have NOT tried email. I'll have to give that a try if plans later this year come thru to try to hike Old Settlers Trail.
    I've used them several times in the past... the guy is real interesting to chat with during drives.
