I will be doing an overnight quick trip soon. Anyone suggest the best place to stay in tent between Greasy Creek Gap and Nolichucky River in Erwin. Was considering Beauty Spot. Any suggestions?

My wife and I hiked this section a few months ago and found a great campsite just north of Beauty Spot. I'm sorry I don't remember more about the specifics of where it's located but it's in a grassy area, about 1/3 acre in size surrounded by woods on one side of the trail (left side going north) and on the other side of the trail the mountain starts sloping downward pretty steeply.

There's a fire pit (you can see the rock circle from the trail. Out of sight, but about a hundred feet from a place that is perfect for a tent is a piped spring that isn't in either of the guidebooks I have.

Thanks 10-K, I'll look for this, great help to have the spring.
