- then just hike fast and catch up!!!
PS I'm seriously thinking of starting at the Cosby Campground
parking area. Good place to park and leave a vehicle. Hiking out
of the park on day one thus avoiding needing to worry with permits.
Another possibility is to start at Newfound Gap and just hike down
the side trails a little ways at night to avoid the shelters. Only
the designated camps tend to be several miles off the AT. Another
possibility woiuld be to hike From NFG to Hughs Ridge Trail then
conitinuing on around on the various trails around the base of the
mountains till hooking back onto the AT at Davenport. Its about 10
miles total to hike up to the AT from Cosby, continue north on the
AT and get out of the park. How far is it to Hot Springs from
Davenport? Does the AT run close to the HotSprings Campground? If
my wife dont show, could I pay sombody for a ride (Cody and I) back
to Cosby. Hopefully someone headed back in that direction?
