    but yeah, the Park service doesnt like info about manways to be published......


    Greg Hoover (a local to the Park hiker) wrote a book and while he wrote about manways, he never

    he's the one that lives in sevier county so guessing (how could it not be) it's the same guy....

    and yeah.......the SMHC does a bunch of off trail trips...

    and their newsletters are a good source for manways.......

    a good read is their trip down raven fork a few years ago....

    i'll try to find it...
