For those of you who don't know, there's this thing here in NC called the Mountains-To-Sea Trail. Nominally, it goes all the way from GSMNP to the coast, but most of the Eastern portion follows roads and whatnot - not what I'd call a "trail". However, part in the mountains is REALLY nice. I've done a couple of sections.
How does this relate to this thread? The MTST goes through Linville Gorge. I'm thinking about doing that section, plus the adjacent section through Wilson Creek, sometime this spring. I'm shooting for NICE weather, not COLD.
If anyone's interested, let me know. I'm still getting all the details together, but it looks like a pretty easy 5-6 day trip or an intense 3-4 days. That's with my paltry ~ 10 miles/day in terrain.
