Thank you for keeping us posted on this.

I look forward to hiking the sections of the MST, heck I'm right down the road from some of it. My bigest problem is getting a ride back to my car. Are there any people who do shuttling in the area between Mt. Mitchell and Grandfather MTN ?

I have the FMST website bookmarked. I have taken a good look at it didn't see any of that info. Would it be in Taba Wards trail guide? I have contacted CMC and highcountry hikers, and have never recieved a reply. I must be using the wrong email address.

Any information is greatly appreciated and very welcome. Again thank you for all your help on the MST. I hope to do some distance on it soon!!!!

I haven't seen the latest edition of Taba's guides. But they should have some good contact info. CBS sports in Morganton is another good source of info.

CMS only maintains up to about Black Mtn campground. Check some the task force contacts for the area on the ncmst.org site.

Also PM Grits. He is local to Boone.
