So far I have one route worked out(starting and ending near Smokemont) but it leads me towards shelter camping as well and that I would like to avoid. My main goal is to get some hiking in each day(moderate 8-10 miles max per day unless its really worth the extra push),take pictures of some great views,be able to fish near camp and stay in the backcountry as much as possible. I do realize I will probably have to sacrifice some things so all thoughts/advice will be greatly appreciated.
