Going from Springer to Neels Gap. Starting on March 9 and looking to leave my car at Neels Gap and hike back to it. Any suggestion on rides or places to stay when arriving late on March 8th.

There are two of us hiking.

Call Cool Breeze at Mountain Crossings for a shuttle. The closest place to stay overnight would be at the hostel there at Mountain Crossings as well.

I don't think you can park your car their overnight. Not unless you are in the Hostel. I heard of them having cars towed from the parking lot.

There is parking not quite a mile south of Mountain Crossings, whoever you get to shuttle you will probably be nice enough to help you get your car there and back up to the hostel should you elect to stay there.

Blood Mountain Cabins is at Neel's Gap. We've stayed there twice and the hospitality was fantastic. The cabins are fully equipped and very comfortable. If you ask permission, George, the proprietor may let you park your vehicle there while you hike. The AT is about 1/4 mile uphill from the cabins.
