Appalachian Trail: Section from Carvers Gap to US 19E (CNF Trail No.1) Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This one way shuttle trip is described from south to north, the easier direction, and is often done as a two-day backpack. The combination of magnificent vistas, open grassy balds, unusual vegetation, and marvelous campsites makes this traverse of the spine of the Appalachians along the AT from Carvers Gap to US 19E a classic.
However, the steep ascents and descents, combined with sometimes difficult footing and exposed campsites, make this trip a real challenge for the novice backpacker."
