    Just moved a half year ago from Knoxville. My brother in law and I are looking for the best SE weekend trip 2-4 day trip that has a high level of difficulty. Basically looking for a trip that will push us a bit more thank usual, good water crossings, exposure, and great rewards. All suggestions are very welcome.

    I've heard the John Muir Trail in the Big South Fork is a pretty intense trail. It's around 80 miles, so that would be a grueling 4 day hike. There are lots of hikes in the BSF that you could check out.

    You are also not to far from the Smokies and the AT.

    The Art Loeb Trail in the Pisgah National Forest near Brevard, NC is a pretty challenging hike from what I've heard. You may want to check it out. You may also want to give some consideration to the Fires Creek Rim trail.

    How is the Jacassee Gorge area? It looks really cool, but wondering how the experience would be?
