    Default How Crowded?

    Planning hike from Clingmans Dome to Hot Springs. Hike will begin sometime between end of Aug or early Sept. What kind of crowds can I expect. Can I expect the amount of hikers I encountered on Springer last April or will I be lucky to see a few hikers?

    Not too many. a few more around the BFG to Charlie's bunion section.
    Then over by cammerer possibly. Local hikers mostly. Should be no problem though

    as long as you avoid labor day weekend-----thats the time of the summer when it's a little less crowded due to people going back to school and what not.....
