Is it feasible to hike fron Springer mt. to Neel's gap in 2 days?
If not, what is the best 2 day hike in the GA AT?

for a relatively in shape person, yes it is. Its only 30 miles. There def some easy parts in that section. But then again, we had just walked some 2100 miles at that point so just about anything seemed easy. But ya, its a nice section, you can do it in two days. Just make sure you get an early start on day 1. Also, are you planning on hiking the approach trail up Springer? if not, then this is even more doable. Plus, Neels Gap is a good place to catch a ride/shuttle back to your car.

I've done it in about a day and a quarter. Definitely doable.

For an Armchair warrior, I seriously doubt it. For the novice hiker, I would recommend two nights and a walk-out.
