Mount Leconte via Alums Cave / Bluff One way GPX data
by reptileexperts on Oct 11, 2010
Gatlinburg Area, Tennessee, United States
5.5 miles
This was our third ascent up to Mount Leconte, and this was our second time doing it via Alums Cave. My brother was hiking this with a broken foot to show how easy it can be if you have the right mind set. You gain nearly 2700 feet, 3300 if you look at different profile types considering all ups even after a down. It's a strenuous hike, but highly recommended for the views alone....

When I am planning a trip, I find a spend a lot of time looking for notes about...

Fort Harry, Tennessee, United States
12.3 miles
If you are on the NC side, stop at Peter's Pancakes & Waffles for the backpackers pancakes! Start the trail going towards Charlies Bunion unless you want a LONG hike up via Dry Sluice Gap. The hike from Kephart to the AT was not that bad... It was a 14 mile hike. Get to Charlie's Bunion early! Listen carefully while at Charlie's Bunion, you may hear some wolves!!
