9986Re: [Hammock Camping] Loop hike info?
- Aug 6, 2005Coy, I will assume you do not have a map of the area.
I have an old NC AT Map and it seems like it would be
easy to do the loop you are talking about. If you
start at Standing Indian Campground and take the
Kimsey Creek Trail south or south west - I would guess
up stream, ( Kimsey Creek looks like it flows through
or really close to Standing Indian Campground) anyway
you will head toward GA and the AT. The NC AT trail
guide says it is 3.7 miles to the AT. It looks like
you hit the AT at or near Deep Gap, NC (82.4 miles
North of Springer Mt. Go North young man and you go
to AT mile 103.1 N-from Springer Mt. at Rock Gap and
USFS Road 67. If you have a car here you are done if
you have a car at Standing Indian Campground it is 1.4
miles back to the Campground. Looks to be more or
less 24 miles if you walk back to Standing Indian
Campground for your car.
I hope this helps or if you have any other specific
Bill in Texas
