Smoky Mountains: Winter Backpacking–4 Days–Hiking and Camping in the Cold
Another long backpacking trip in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park — this time in the snow!
I took four days in early February, 2016, to explore the Southwestern reaches of the park: the Twentymile Trail, the Lost Cove Trail, and the Lakeshore Trail. I spent the nights at campsites 77, 81, and 93.
I camped with a tarp and got some snow on the trip. In the video I also feature the Calhoun House, Proctor Cemetery, Fontana Lake, and more . . .
Hope you like the video!
