I've got two trips planned in October. My wife and I are camping at Jones Gap State Park. All of the campsites are trailside primitive and almost all of them are right next to the Middle Saluda River. You can reserve the sites on-line

I like to setup a base camp and hike to several waterfalls in the area.

I'm also planning to do a section of the Foothills Trail with a couple of friends. We'll start where the trail crosses Hwy 178 and hike west to the top of Laurel Fork Falls, hang out there for a day or two and hike back out.

I'm a college football fanatic. So I'll be taking a portable radio in the backcountry this Oct.

looking for the best two night loop in Smoky Mountain NP in mid Nov. 34/29 would have been my first pick, but 34 is closed.
