In addition to the trips Brian Carney has arranged for March and April, he’s also working on group trips to two possible locations, Hazel Creek and/or Smokemount. Both would best in May or June, so send Brian email and suggest dates (email@example.com) if you’re interested.
Hazel Creek: This trip requires reserving a camping spot, scheduling a ferry across Fontana Lake, and an easy hike.
Smokemont: Camping at the GSMNP Campsite off 441 above Cherokee. Also requires reserving a camping spot, but it’s less hiking, more car camping. Streams in the area include the Oconaluftee, Mingus, Collins, Kephart Prong, Bradley Fork and Beech Flats Prong.
If you’re interested get in touch with Brian and let him know preferred dates and number of people.
