    I'd suggest going over to Trailjournals.com and reading several of the AT hikers from last year's accounts of those sections.

    Off the top of my head.....Unicoi Gap is a good trailhead to leave your car. Going south on the same highway to Helen from Unicoi...take a left on the FS road and that should take you to Indian Grave Gap and Tray Mountain Gap (I would not leave my car there at either one) The terrain is like anywhere else in GA/NC. You go up, then you go down. Then you go up again, etc. There are lots of camping spots between Unicoi Gap and Dick's Greek Gap. Lots of locals out on the weekend so you could have lots of company. The trail is easy walking. Deep Gap shelter is/was a nice shelter with a cooking area. The toilet has one of the better views around as far as outhouses go. When the water level is up there are lots of springs. Don't know about the water now, though.
    I'm not really a hiker, I just play one on White Blaze.
