We parked at Cosby Campground and hiked Gabe’s Mountain Trail to Backcountry Campsite #34. Backcountry Campsite 34 is an excellent campsite! It’s located alongside a stream, so water is plentiful. Also, there are an abundance of fire rings and places to pitch tents at Backcountry Campsite 34. There are two bear pulley systems. Like all backcountry campsites in the Smoky Mountains, be sure to contact the Backcountry Office to obtain a camping permit. If you’re looking for a somewhat short hike with elevation gain, nice views and an incredible backcountry campsite, I highly recommend Backcountry Campsite 34! #Backcountry #Backpacking #SmokyMountains
