Rip & Go: Big Creek Loop

In the "Rip & Go" section of the January issue of Backpacker Magazine there's an article on hiking the Big Creek Loop in the Great Smoky Mountains.

The column describes a two-day, one night backpacking trip in the northeastern part of the park. Some of the highlights of the 16.4-mile hike include Mouse Creek Falls and the Mt. Sterling fire tower.

Also included in the article is some information on a seldom-seen, 150-foot waterfall that spills off of 6,234-foot Luftee Knob - - just off the Gunter Fork Trail.
