W4T/SU-006 Mt Kephart

3 mile hike with 1380' EG. Trailhead is at Newfound Gap on Hwy 441 (35.611, -83.426). Large parking lot, but can get very busy. Head north on the AT for 2.7 miles, take a left on the Boulevard Trail and after a short distance take a right on the trail to the Jumpoff. The summit of Mt Kephart is 1/4 mile before you get to the Jumpoff, which I do recommend for the views. Summit is along the trail with only a small overgrown clearing. This was a very busy trail on a summer weekend.
