    Default Airport/Trail shuttles near Hampton TN

    Hey,
    I'm wondering about the closest airport and reliable shuttle service to get me to US321 near Hampton TN. I think it's US321 anyways. I got off the trail near Watauga Lake/Dam in 2004. I'll be traveling from Maine and hiking home. This would be for mid/late spring 2019.

    Cheers

    The Trail crosses US Highway 321 at Watauga Lake.

    That would be Tri-Cities Airport.

    This is absolutely NOT the final word on this subject, but only a start. I'm sure there are better choices out there, but this is one to START with, for comparison.
    Anyway, Mountain Harbour will shuttle between Tri-Cities Airport and Lake Watauga for a total of $130. They may charge less because the lake is between them and the airport.

    Thanks for the advice. I did Google search prior to posting here but it's nice to have things confirmed by people in the know.

    Suggestion:
    Call Mountain Harbor. Ask for a quote for a shuttle from their location to Tri-Cities. You hike to there location ON THE AT. As I understand it, itís not that far from the Lake to Mountain Harbor.

    $75 from their MH to Tri-cities airport for 4 people then additional $10 per person per their web site.
    $100 to Asheville airport where there are more flights.
