Shhhhh! Don't tell everybody about it!! Wilburn ridge, with the big
rocks and grass kinda looks like where they'd film one of the old B
westerns. Even has "wild" ponies roaming around. There are a lot of
good loop hikes in the area, the best uses the old AT (to the West), now
the Iron Mtn Trail, to make a 60+ mile loop trail. For those of you
that haven't been there in a year or two, there is a new shelter on the
AT at the north boundary of the park on Wilson Creek.
A good family trip is to start at Massie Gap, hike the AT S to
Rhododenderon Gap, then Pine Mtn Trail N to connect up with the AT again
on Pine Mtn, and follow back S to Massie Gap. This is about ten miles,
good for a weekend with the kids.
Durn. There I went and told everybody. :-( With the popularity of
the AT-L, may as well have been in _Backpacker_ ;-)
