I won't be going through there. At Sloan's Bridge, we'll hit the East Fork Mountain Trail and go west all the way to the Chatooga. It comes out just north of Ellicott Rock.

I've also hiked from Laurel Valley to Jumping Off Rock and back on a day hike which skirts part of the FT.
I've got to do this.
