Yes, Rick, Trailfest
is a one-day (Apr 12) social event sponsered by the town for AT
hikers. The trail runs right through town! It's really just a Spring
celabration featuring area musicians--playing and dancing on the lawn,
etc. Some vendors will be present. Mostly a mountain town beer
bust! Last year they had about 200-300 people, mostly locals. There
is a web site: www.trailfest.net
I am doing a 20 mi hike
on the trail reaching Hot Springs Sat am (12 Apr). That commerical
campground you found is in town and very convenient--lots of spaces, but you
probably should make reservations. The hot springs are commerical and
reservations are definately required if interested--they use outdoor hot tubs w/
hot water, so it's not what you'd expect. I'll be staying in town Sat
pm--would be great to see ya there...Ed
I saw on your site
that you intend to be at Hot Springs for Trail
Fest on the weekend prior
to Easter weekend. I will be driving from
Dayton to the FL panhandle
that weekend with my pop-up camper and
family. it only takes me a
couple hours out of my way to stop.
How big is the event?
Any hope of getting a camping spot in town for
Friday eve?? I did
find one commercial campgroud, but have not
called them. I think it
was the hot springs campground??
