Great Smoky Mountain National Park is located on the border between Tennessee
and North Caroline. It includes 520,000 acres of mountainous terrain that
includes several of the tallest tree site in the eastern United States. For the
purpose of this locations listing it is treated as a separate entity. Will
Blozan, Jess Riddle, Michael Davie and a few others have participated in most
trips in the park. The trip reports are organized by drainage basin or district
based upon http://www.nativetreesociety.org/fieldt ... ainage.htm
guidelines sent to me by Jess Riddle. Any errors in placing the trip into
the correct basin are entirely my own. .pdf format maps of the park are
available at: http://www.nps.gov/grsm/pphtml/maps.html
http://www.nps.gov/grsm/pphtml/maps.html GSMNP quads maps are available at

Sorry, folks. I stand corrected about my hike. That was MEIGS Mtn. Tr., not
Gabes Mtn. (which also has some good old growth). They are both in the TN
Smokies. Here are some images taken along the Meigs Mtn. Tr., and along
Meigs Creek.
