This months Southern Living magazine has a page about the Smoky Mnts. They tell of the alternate routes other than the main roads to get into the park.Some things should be better left unprinted. Especially for those who live in that area....just a thought

Why? Are they routes that non-locals might find tricky to navigate or something? They should put a warning if that's the case!

When talking about in the Smokie Mountain National park and right around there, yes, there are several roads that are very tricky to navigate and some you must have 4 wheel drive vehicle, but these are marked. They are also not usual routes. There are a few on the map that I didn't realize were this way, I can't recall the road numbers right now but I remember trying to find a less traffic way through the mountains when I was doing a lot of going back and forth from Jefferson County to the Cherokee area of NC. There were a few times I found myself on narrow a dirt road. So if you are driving around that area, have a map and pay close attention to the key of that map.

Oh, I gotcha. Well, my take on it is that unless the locals actually own and maintain the roads, they've no claim on them, so I guess I think the article is a good thing!
