    Tennessee Backpacking April 5th,6th & 7th

    I am hitting the woods (somewhere), April 5th-7th. I haven't decided where to go. Thinking about Big South Fork. Anyone interested in joining? I plan on leaving Nashville around noon on Friday and returning Sunday. South Cumberland is a possibility because of its proximity but I'd kind of like to do some trails that I haven't done before. Maybe Frozen Head?

    Thoughts? Suggestions?

    I like BSF and South Cumberland. I think the BSF gives you more trail options though.
    Let me see if we can make it

    You named three great places already, but don't overlook throwing the Cumberland Trail into the mix of possibilities.

    I enjoy bsf and frozen head. Any suggestions on the Cumberland trail. I am not opposed to an in and out hike. The maps seem to be a little vague to me. At least for trip planning.

    This might work out for me. I was planning on heading out next weekend as long as work doesn't go crazy the beginning of next week. Let me know where you decide and I will try to make it.

    There is a road that you can drive to from the Bandy Visitor Ctr that intersects the JMT. Since I was planning to be solo, I thought I would park there and wander around between Grand Gap and Station Camp Creek along the bluffs for a few days.
