"November would be a great time. We need to be sure that there is no rain in the forecast, because the climb back out would be no fun, and you have to get back across Raven Fork to start back. I have gone both routes, although Peyton was still…"

Breakneck Ridge

Looking for comments on the present condition of Breakneck Ridge.I hiked from Cosby to Smokemont via the Breakneck Ridge trail about 35 years ago back when I was in college. I'm just wondering if it is feasible these days. I'm not quite as hearty as I was back then and if it is terribly overgrown I probably don't have any business fooling around with it.Also, what is park policy on going off official trails?ThanksMorgan BeardenRolla, MissouriSee More

Looking for comments on the present condition of Breakneck Ridge.

I hiked from Cosby to Smokemont via the Breakneck Ridge trail about 35 years ago back when I was in college. I'm just wondering if it is feasible these days. I'm not quite as hearty as I was back then and if it is terribly overgrown I probably don't have any business fooling around with it.

Also, what is park policy on going off official trails?

Thanks
