Weird for sure. But then again it is Cocke Co. 1st reports on the news said it was on Gatlinburg trail, now they say off-trail in Cosby? I have a feeling we're not getting the full story. The park service release this morning was just as vague as the channel 10 story.

Maybe someone wanted to have Indian Camp all to themselves

while it's the heart of Ginseng season, if it were a grow op, it would have been a much bigger story.

I hike off-trail all the time, as do many, MANY others. The only thing fishy about that is when I'm actually fishing, and one would be silly to infer that one would only be off-trail only for questionable activities.

Hiking(tons of manways), Peak Bagging, Historical finds, and many of the Smokies best features are all off-trail

Looks like you should have to suffer through a few Mike Maples videos for redemption:

LOL I watched (as much as I could handle) this video yesterday and by the looks of it, we had the same opinion.

I was just being sarcastic. I wasn't trying to give Mike a hard time as he is a great stewart of the park, and while I do enjoy his vast knowledge of many areas, it can sometimes seem like a sermon that has gone on a little too long.

Ooh and he needs to say 3 Hail Trouts and light a candle also
