Spot for an Introductory Hike

The Cherokee Sentinel (from Murphy, NC) has a column in its 8 August 2007 issue titled "Best Appalachian trail beginner's hike: Bring the kids" by "George columnist."

It describes the writer's nomination for "the easiest section between two very accessible roads anywhere south of the Smokies." He has "introduced a number of novice hikers to the trail, including preschool children," on this section of Trail. Where is it? The 3.6 mile stretch between Woody and Gooch gaps, near Suches, GA.

The article gives directions, suggestions, and descriptions.
