There's a parking lot right off of State Road 600, which has trail heads to Elk Garden, AT and Highlands Horse Trail. There's no camping allowed in the parking area, obviously, but if you arrive late at night (like I did), there are two camping sites on the edge of the woods, right behind the parking lot. (Beside AT trail head). There's one bathroom (housed hole in the ground).

This a great trail. The AT meets with here so you get to talk with people who are hiking the AT. I chose to stay on the AT to White Top Mtn. GREAT HIKE.
