I try to do a backpacking/fishing trip every fall break to see the colors and do a little fishing. This year my vacation is at the beginning of the month instead of at the end so I'm looking for something up higher to see the foliage. For the past 2 years I've always gone to #23 and the leaves and fishing were "specktacular" the third week in October.
If anyone has any insight as to the campsite and creeks around #61 (Noland, Clingman Creek, Bald Creek, etc) I would greatly appreciate it. If you don't feel comfortable saying anything on here, you can email me at benschulz01@gmail dot com
I debated on going to #47 but I've read around here that it is not a good place to go solo.
