View Full Version : Springer to Smokies start end of Sept?

Hey guys,

I hiked from Atkins, VA to Shenandoah in May 2010 (trail name Eagle). Now I'm planning my next section hike.

Anyone have any advice on hiking from Springer through the Smokies starting the last week of September?

I'm trying to figure out what kind of weather and crowds to expect. I don't predict seeing too many other people (bummer, but I can't start my vacation any earlier) and hope the weather should still be pretty mild down there.

Anyone have any good input for me?
