    Linville Gorge suggestions

    I am planning a 4 day 3 night trip to the Linville Gorge for the weekend after next. I just want some advice from you older gorge rats for the best hike! I have hiked most of the west rim but would like to start of on the east rim. What is a good 4 day route? Any suggestions PLEASE!
    Thanks

    Thanks you two! And Kayak Karl i believe you were featured in a nice little Linville Gorge video i just viewed. Maybe one of Shugs, i'm not sure. Acouple people I have talked to have talked about the wolf pit to spence ridge. Then from spence ridge to a led mine trail. I am not sure about the spelling on that.
