    Not GSMNP but Grayson Highlands is tough to beat. Low mileage loop. Great views. And ponies.
    Just pick good weather cause it can be brutal.

    I’m not aware of a trail that gets you around Franklin so I think it’s either shuttle, road walk or hitch. Franklin being a trail town helps with the shuttle situation at least.

    Looks like the max reservable is 40 spots. That’s about the size of the backcountry lot. They had a bunch of No Parking signs up along the shoulders that were new.

    I’ve come across a journal or note or something about the trail being done this way.

    Shoot an email to the MST org email address and see if they know.

    Maybe trailjournals?

    Zpacks Arc Haul

    Yep I’m pleased with my Arc Haul.
    The only complaint was the hip pocket I bought. It required two hands to open. I’d go with the optional shoulder pouch if I had to do it again.
