My trip to the Smokies was a bit of an impromptu one. Noelle is getting over the same stomach bug that Sierra had and didn't want to risk going out for a hike. However, the weather was so nice I didn't want to waste such a beautiful day. I opted to avoid Gatlinburg and head over to Cataloochee to do a relatively short loop that would get me home at a reasonable time. After getting turned around and making a wrong turn en route, I found myself at the trailhead in Cataloochee after 2 hours of driving.
I parked and hit the trail
I stopped for a break and snack at the junction and then headed downstream to connect with the Boogerman Loop,which I had hiked last fall.
I passed campsite 41
