How's the camping on this trail? Are there lots of places to set up tents or are you required to camp in dresignated spots?

Is it well blazed? Someone mentioned orienteering skills were needed. Any comments about that? Thanks.

It's been a while since I walked any of that trail below the BRP, but there aren't any camping restrictions I know of anywhere along the trail. Water can be a little scarce above the BRP, but there are decent places to get some, especially if the seeps are flowing. Orienting skills aren't at a premium, it's one of the most popular trails in Pisgah National Forest/Shining Rock Wilderness. Having said that, anyone with decent map skills should be good to go.

Can the ALT be done without a map? Or are they still searching for the last guys who didn't take a map? Can I get a map in Brevard?

OK...got the map. Thanks, Ed. There was a lot of info on that other website. Was hoping not to go there. Dixi says there's a lot of hikers who visit here so ... interestingly, I got most of my info from Chaco's posts. Peace out.

Thanks again, Ed. Chaco had a lot of posts about ALT on that other website.

Why do people on the internet try to create a problem when there isn't one?

Actually was on Shining Rock today. Took the Old Butt Knob trail up, Shining Creek down.

We ate lunch on the rocks, could see a storm brewing so decided to hoof to the SC trail. As soon as we started down all hell broke loose - lightning and hail.

Great hike.
