I need some advise on a 3 day- 2 night backpacking trip in the Shining Rock wilderness.
I have never been to this area and would love some input from people that have been there.
We want to hike around 8-10 miles on Fri, 8-10 miles on Sat,
and 6-8 miles on Sun.

What trails and camping locations do you suggest?

Great views and a stop at Shining Rock to boot.
