    MacEntire & Ken are right. If we choose that campsite (& I hope we do) it's basically all down hill on the way in, until you get to the trail that follows the river, the Linville Gorge Trail (LGT), & that's just a little up & down. Not bad at all.
    And the trail in & out is not a bad trail. Just take your time.
    I've taken kids & out of shape friends on that trail & they did fine.

    As we get a little closer, we'll make a list of perspective hammockers, but the site that Ken, MacEntire & me used earlier this year is nice & flat w/ enough well spaced trees to handle as many hammocks as needed.

    I know. I usually don't try to make "during the week" trips either, but since we may be having out of town company, I'll make an exception<G>.
