    Advice regarding Big South Fork backpacking?

    A friend and I would like to do some backpacking in Tennessee's Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area in October. There appears to be no shortage of trails to hike or things to see.

    Any suggestions on a great 2-night loop backpacking trip that does not exceed 15 miles or so? I love great views, cemeteries, rustic buildings, etc.

    Thanks in advance.

    One my family enjoys is park at the Sawmill Trailhead, hike to Charit Creek Lodge. We stay in a cabin and let them feed us, but you can camp there and feed yourself. Then we do the Twin Arches loop and back to the Sawmill Trailhead. I think that's less than 15 miles, but you get streams, waterfall, old cabin sites, and great views on top of the Twin Arches.
