I'm planning a section from Roan Mountain to Partnership Shelter for the last week of September through the first week of October. Any suggestions on really cool camping spots in this section? Not planning to sleep in shelters much, maybe just Overmountain. My plan is to hike from Roan Mountain to Overmountain the first day (7 miles) after driving from home. After that I don't have any definite plans except a stop in Damascus one night. I usually hike 15 to 20 miles each day.
Is anyone else going to be in this area at that time. I wouldn't mind hiking with someone else for a couple of days.
