    Linville Gorge Routes

    Hey All, I am planning a 3 day/2 night trip to Linville Gorge. Do you have any route/trail suggestions for a 6-8mi/day trip?

    Thanks!

    I might suggest you head over to www.linvillegorge.net and check us out. There are a ton of trip reports, routes, data downloads and our own maps that list trails not on published maps.

    6-8 miles per day ... the nature of the Gorge trails ... it works better not to think in miles but rather hours of walking.

    You have access to two vehicles or are you looking for an in and out ... or looking for a loop trail?

    Most of the Gorge Rats are in the Gorge this week but if you'll go to the site and register under the name you use here I'll make sure you get approved right away. Lot of helpful folks that can give you specifics and answer any questions you might have.

    Looks like a good resource... Definitely on my list of places to check out...
