    Default Carvers Gap to Dennis Cove Rd

    I am going to be section hiking going north between Carvers Gap and Dennis Cove Rd. Wanting to know if there is a good camp site with water between 19E and Dennis Cove Road? Around 13 miles north of 19E? Thanks!

    I remember lots of campsites in that section, both north and south of the Moreland Gap shelter. I camped (hammocked) next to a large creek, maybe the Laurel Fork?, several miles south of that shelter. There is a nice site just north of the Moreland Gap shelter in an open field, maybe that's White Rocks? But it's only a couple of miles south of Dennis Cove. The guidebooks list a lot of campsites near all the creeks that cross the trail.

    The map looks like a little stream coming close up to the saddle at about that 13 mile mark just before you start a 1.5 mile climb up to Moreland Gap shelter (which was nothing extra IMO, but lots of camping around it and the water wasn't too terribly far down -but steep on the east face. Hwy 19 is right under you and I heard traffic up into the night. Getting down a bit on the east side could quiet that down some.
