I often pack into Harper Creek in the Pisgah NF and love the area. The trail rating is "difficult". However it has become more difficult foe me as my bad knee's get worse. Does anyone know of other locations in western NC that would be easier to access (for me) and would still be in a wilderness area and not a "campground"? Not being familiar with areas outside of the Harper Creek/Wilson Creek location you may need to be specific with your suggestions.

Thanks very much for your help.
