Never mind...Found it...at least I found Raven Fork. Doesn't look like much on the map.

I have been talking with Mayday about hiking this trip this spring. I have yet to do much research on it but would love to and plan on making it. Please keep this thread informed on your progress and any plans you finalize. We can share info and might find others interested.
Thanks.

To Duckypaddler...Been out of town
a coupla days so I did not respond. I took the shhh...same way you did and you hit the nail on the head...yes, I have done a lot
of backcountry but have not been to 3 Forks and the more I know
the better I'm prepared. That's why I posted.
Thanks and 'nuff said.

To RainBBow...I left my email address on a previous post and if interested let me know.

I've always been intrigued by the "big pool" up Raven Fork where all three forks come together and have always wanted to hike down there if only to see it (apparently has some nice old growth forest left). There is an older account on the web about a group that hiked down Breakneck Ridge and then hiked out the creek bed. Unfortunately it turned into an overnight trip and some good lessons learned about off-trail hiking. (http://www.twohikers.org/SE_Hiking/RavenFork1.htm)

Kenneth Wise's book on hiking trails in the Smokys discusses the hike down Breakneck Ridge to the Three Forks.

If you do go, please take a picture and post it as, again, I have always wanted to see that part of the Park.
