We hiked 6.3 miles to Erwin, TN. We got a ride into town from a local outfitter and a dozen hikers took over the all-you-can-eat pizza buffet fit lunch. We got a small resupply of lunch foods at a local grocery store and took advantage of all the discounted Easter candy. We got a ride back to the trailhead where could do laundry and shower at the Nolichucky Hostel. We hiked only 4.2 miles to Curley Maple Gap Shelter for the night.
