Shining Rock Wilderness

Please consider subscribing to my YouTube Channel Designated as a wilderness in 1964, Shining Rock was one of the original areas of the National Wilderness System. Initially the act set aside 13,600 acres, but in 1984 the wilderness was increased to 18,483 acres. Elevations range for 3,200 feet to almost 6,400 feet. This four night backpacking trip starts on Little East Fork Trail in the Daniel Boone Boy Scout Camp (3,400′) and climbs up to the top of Tennet Mountain (6,214′). Then over to Shining Rock Gap and down the Art Loeb Trail back to Daniel Boone Boy Scout Camp.
