Campsite 50 is a perfect choice it's under 2 miles a very easy hike and plenty of good fishing up from that site on Bradley Fork. Cabin Flats campsite 49 isn't that bad of a hike like 6.3 I think with slight elevation. if you get a brown book "The Hiking Trails of the Smokies it will show you all the the distances and elevations of all trails in the park.

I have been on backpack trips with kids as young as 9 and they will surprise you, they can hike at a pretty good clip good luck on your trip that is one of my favorite areas of the park. The trail is very easy to find and follow it's an old road bed so it's wide campsite 50 is .1 mile when you turn right at Chasteen Creek start looking for the bear cables the site comes up quick. it has 3 areas and fire pits one area is a large grassy open field. Remember to treat all water in the backcountry with either a filter or drops or boil for 1 minute.

At least that's where folks usually indicate they want a booksigned (although I'll confess I don't know doodly-squat about the technical side of things--my webmaster, who lives a country away in Missoula, MT, sets up all these things for me).

Jim,
Thanks for the advice on the books and for signing them. I don't know who is going to be happier reading the books, my son or myself.
John

Spotlight and everyong,
Thank you very much for all of the recommendations and advice. I have just started conditioning hikes with my son, starting out small. Where we finally end up will in part be determined by where we are at with our conditioning hikes by the spring. Campsight 50 may be an option, we might even plan on trying 50 the first night, and if all goes well moving on to 49 the next.

Thanks again,
John
