    Hiking north your first opportunity to get off trail will be at Deep Gap, about 7 miles into NC. But it’s an inconvenient place to get a shuttle.

    Any gaps or road crossing suitable to leave a car for 1 night? Other than Vogel State Park, which is $5 if Iím not mistaken. Correct me if Iím wrong on that.
