Appalachian trail to the Atlantic coast - suggested routes.

Jump to last reply

My girlfriend and I are travelling from London to New York on April 15 th to start a 6 week road trip to friends in Texas. We have already gathered a mass of information on this board and have a pretty good idea of out route. However we are stuck on one part of the journey.We are planning to take the Skyline Drive and possibly part of the Blue Ridge Parkway, before heading east across to the Outer Banks at maybe the Nags Head area. Can anyone suggest where to leave the trail, what route to follow and a possible overnight stop. We enjoy nature, photography,local food and would prefer a small B&b/ hotel.
For your information we are heading south through Charleston, Savannah, across to the Gulf of Mexico, on through New Orleans and into Texas staying in San Antonio and Austin.
Any suggestions from people who know that area would be gratefully received. Thank you .
