We are going next month, and I totally agree about the approach trail being quite magical in the Fall. I have not been on the BMT in this area, besides like a mile or 2 off the road. I am online now, looking for a good spot...I just want a good spot for a good first impression for my wife. She is having some reservations.
Also, I kind of wanted to avoid Springer, because it has always been super crowded that close to the road, unless things have changed in the last couple years.
